Please plan to join the General Counsel of major Boston area companies and the Managing Partners of major Boston law firms for an important conference on promoting diversity and enhancing career development for minority lawyers. A more detailed program agenda will be sent to you within the next few weeks.
Monday June 22, 2009
2:00 to 5:00 PM
Reception to follow
Host: Fidelity Investments
One Seaport Lane
Boston, MA 02210
At the conference, we will discuss:
- Strategies for hiring, retaining, and promoting lawyers of color.
- Senior in-house counsel responsible for engaging outside lawyers for major matters will discuss what qualities they seek and how minority lawyers can best position themselves to obtain new business and new clients.
- Conference attendees will have ample opportunities to interact with general counsels and members of their senior leadership teams both during the panel discussions and at the reception following the program.
- Please mark your calendar, and encourage the minority lawyers in your legal department to attend as well. During these challenging times, it is more important than ever that we redouble our efforts to advance diversity and inclusion in the Boston legal community.
