Washingtonian Names Debra Katz and Lisa Banks Among the Most Powerful Women in Washington, D.C.

October 2, 2023

KBK partners Debra S. Katz and Lisa J. Banks have been named as two of the Most Powerful Women in Washington, D.C. in the most recent issue of Washingtonian Magazine. According to Washingtonian editors, “To arrive at this roster, we talked to industry leaders, people with their finger on the pulse, and of course names on lists of years past to find out which women in the region wield the most power right now. (Fun fact: Powerful women do not hesitate to share names of other powerful women.) We also scoured the news—seeking out people responsible for it, both in the forefront and behind the scenes. Finally, we looked to the city’s most powerful institutions and those leading them. From arts, nonprofit, and media mavens to corporate, political, and legal powerhouses, there are 169 women making a mark in Washington.”

Ms. Katz and Ms. Banks were both recognized as legal powers. This marks the first time that Ms. Banks has been included on the list, while it’s Ms. Katz’s third time to receive this recognition.
