Background

The Elevating Black Excellence Regional Summit Series is a unique and powerful event addressing some of the most frequently asked questions among in-house counsel:

  • How do we learn about and engage Black partners?
  • Who has the legal background and experience we need for a particular matter?

Boardrooms across the country are placing increased emphasis on the hiring of Black partners. With no formal platform to identify them, and corporations struggling to answer these questions, Black partners continue to be underutilized for high-profile corporate legal work.

Why Attend?

The Elevating Black Excellence Regional Summit Series is a virtual event that showcases black partners in their areas of expertise and where they truly excel. Attendees will get to explore and learn in sessions from many different speakers. At the conclusion of the event, members of in-house legal teams will be offered access to a comprehensive outside counsel search platform to learn more about each individual participating Black partner.
