Leadership Greater Chicago announced that Oak Park resident Teresa Harmon, managing partner at Sidley Austin LLP, is among 25 executives selected to participate in the second cohort of its Daniel Burnham Fellowship.

Launched in February of 2019, the fellowship consists of five sessions. It is "designed to inspire these leaders to mobilize and exert their combined influence and intellect to positively impact Chicago, its future, and the continued economic progress of the region," the press release reads.

An accomplished attorney, Harmon first started at Sidley Austin as a summer associate in 1993. Last April, she was named head of the firm's Chicago office.

Harmon is married to Illinois Senate President Don Harmon.
