WilmerHale is proud to announce that three of the firm’s attorneys have been selected for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s (LCLD) prestigious 2024 Fellows and Pathfinders programs.
Partner Brittany Amadi has been named to the 2024 class of LCLD Fellows. The program aims to identify, train and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession who come from underrepresented backgrounds. LCLD Fellows have distinguished themselves within their organizations by being deeply engaged, indispensable to key clients and teams, invested in attorney mentoring and professional development and on a trajectory toward leadership positions.
“Amid the challenges to DEI, we are once again excited to be able to connect high-potential attorneys from diverse backgrounds with this unmatched year-long program focused on leadership and relationship building,” said Robert J. Grey Jr., president of LCLD. “Since its inception more than two decades ago, the LCLD Fellows program has produced some of the most prominent leaders in our industry and it is gratifying to see another outstanding class this year.”
Counsel David Yin and Senior Associate Shafi Armatis were selected to join the 2024 class of the LCLD Pathfinders Program, which provides diverse, high-potential, early-career attorneys with practical tools for developing and leveraging professional networks. Pathfinders are selected by the leaders at LCLD Member corporations and law firms, having been identified as early-career emerging leaders in their own right who have distinguished—or have the potential to distinguish—themselves within their organizations.
The LCLD is an organization of more than 400 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have pledged themselves to creating a truly diverse US legal profession. Their action programs are designed to attract, inspire and nurture the talent in society and within our organizations, thereby helping a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to positions of leadership.
