LCLD is an organization of more than 350 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. Their programs are designed to attract, inspire and nurture talent within organizations to help a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to positions of leadership.

It’s an honor to be named the next Vedder Price Fellow and I look forward to connecting with more diverse attorneys through LCLD’s programming.”
