Avery Blank


A lawyer and strategist, I help individuals and organizations position and advocate for themselves to advance their priorities. I advise clients globally on career strategy and business owners, corporate leaders, and startup founders on thought leadership and organizational strategy. I have worked in the public and private sectors and most recently at the University of Maryland Center for Health & Homeland Security working on crisis management. The National Association for Women Lawyers recognized me for my work in policy and the advancement of women. My writing has appeared in The Washington Post, TIME, Fortune, Fast Company,, and Levo League. I have spoken at the U.S. Department of State and for the American Bar Association and Harvard Law School and am a Tribeca Disruptor Innovation Foundation Fellow. When I am not speaking or writing, I am traveling the world. I am a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law and Colgate University. Call me a bulldog ballerina – graceful, strong, and persevering.

I help people advocate for themselves and leverage opportunities.
