Profiles in Diversity Journal has recognized the firm’s Diversity Leadership Academy as part of its 12th Annual International Innovation in Diversity Awards, honoring businesses and organizations around the world whose strategies are “making a difference” by offering “fresh perspectives and different ways of thinking through realigning recruitment practices, linking diversity goals to performance metrics, thinking broader and networking wider.”
Latham & Watkins was lauded for its Diversity Leadership Academy, a signature initiative launched in 2015. The academy brings together Latham lawyers from around the globe and talented law students from across the United States, with a specific focus on developing and empowering future leaders of the legal profession and creating community among the firm’s lawyers, recruits and other guests, all of whom share a commitment to diversity.
As Global Chair of the Diversity Leadership Committee Nadia Sager explains, “This Academy is one of the ways Latham says to law students and to our attorneys, ‘We are invested in you. We are here to support you. We celebrate the rich experiences and perspectives you bring to the firm and to our clients, and we are dedicated to helping you succeed.
