Bricker & Eckler invites you to attend our Corporate Counsel Summit, hosted by Bricker & Eckler's Walker Link Leadership Group. This year's event features the following presentations and speakers:
General Session Speaker – A Conversation with Justice Stewart
Justice Melody J. Stewart, Keynote Speaker
Panel Discussion | Our DEI Journeys: Sharing Our Lessons Learned and the Pathway Forward
Michaune Tillman, Worthington Industries
Jennifer Adair, State of Ohio
Kim Amrine, Kim Amrine Consulting
At a time when we are 2 years into COVID, post George Floyd, and recognizing the added weight of being a person of color in an industry that continues to work progressively to make a difference in the recruitment, retention and external use of attorneys of color, we would like to talk about lessons learned and what the pathway forward looks like for 2022 and beyond.
This session will allow attendees to learn:
- the reality of starting and stopping the DEI journey during COVID,
- the pressures of being a person of color in a field that lacks representation from historically underrepresented groups and
- the importance of working collaboratively with (government and in-house counsel) to positively impact recruitment and retention of attorneys of color.
At Bricker, we strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully. To request an accommodation or for inquiries about accessibility, please contact Laura Schaller at firstname.lastname@example.org
