The Diversity Professional and Business Development Mentoring Program was developed by the DRI Diversity & Inclusion Committee and the DRI Corporate Counsel Committee. The Mentoring Program is designed for high-potential, early-career civil defense attorneys who are members of DRI and are from historically underrepresented groups. The goal of this program is to provide mentees with practical tools for developing and leveraging relationship-building skills applicable to law firm practice. Selected participants will be paired with a senior-level attorney from the DRI Diversity & Inclusion Committee and with an in-house counsel.
"This is a fantastic program for lawyers from traditionally underrepresented groups, who are DRI members and who have fewer than 10 years of civil defense experience, to develop their skills and expand their networks," said Diversity and Inclusion Committee Vice Chair Gary L. Howard.
Applications and all other requested materials must be received on or before August 9, 2023. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Persons accepted into the Mentorship Program will be officially announced no later than September 6, 2023.
Please reach out to Diversity and Inclusion Committee Chair Stacy Lynne Douglas and/or Committee Vice Chair Gary L. Howard with additional questions.
