The Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association announced the details of its upcoming installation for Jovia Radix, who will take over as president. 

The installation ceremony will be held at the Brooklyn Bar Association on Thursday, June 15 at 6 p.m. Radix will take over the organization in an almost literal passing of the torch as her mother, Hon. Sylvia Hinds-Radix, the NYC Corporation Counsel, and a past president of the BWBA herself, will preside over the ceremony.

Radix, a senior vice president at Kasirer LLC, has experience in various government and political positions, including serving as Brooklyn Regional Representative to former Gov. Andrew Cuomo. 

A Hofstra Law graduate, Radix has been recognized by City & State in their 2021 “Telecommunications Power 50” and “Brooklyn Power 50” lists, as well as being an honoree in the “Power of Diversity: Black 100.” She was also featured in Crain’s New York’s “Notable Black Leaders 2022.”
