As part of our commitment to having a diverse and inclusive workforce, we launched the Diversity Leadership Academy in 2015. This multi-day, in-person professional development program is designed for law students and our mid-level associates who are committed to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
The 2017 academy, recently held in San Francisco, was a smashing success, with more than 170 Latham lawyers from around the globe and over 100 US law students attending. In this video, San Francisco partner Bob Sims and Washington, D.C. partner Shagufa Hossain share why they attended this year’s academy—and what diversity means to them.
