DRI Plans Diversity For Success Seminar

Tuesday, May 1, 2007 - 00:00

DRI will present its Diversity for Success Seminar on Thursday and Friday, June 14 and 15 at The Fairmont Chicago. The Thursday sessions will run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Diversity Expo on Friday will run from 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.

Diversity recognizes, respects and values every aspect of individuality, and everyone benefits from the collective power it generates. This innovative, second annual seminar for minority attorneys and law firm leaders is designed to improve marketing skills and increase the success of law firms and corporate law departments in recruiting and retaining minority counsel.

Friday's Diversity Expo will provide a unique opportunity for selected minority lawyers and their law firms to interview with corporations committed to diversifying their national outside counsel panels. Interviews are limited and pre-selected. Links to the interview application and Diversity Expo corporations can be found at www.DRI.org.

The planning chairs are Pamela W. Carter, Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz PC, Kevin E. Clark, Lightfoot Franklin & White LLC, Cheryl E. Diaz, Thompson & Knight LLP and Chrys A. Martin, Bullivant Houser Bailey PC.
