Almost 200 clients, diversity and inclusion advocates, and Reed Smith attorneys learned from leaders driving diversity in legal profession, participated in workshops with Reed Smith attorneys and industry experts, and shared their experiences as diverse professionals in a competitive field. Reed Smith client GE was also honored with the inaugural Reed Smith Equality & Inclusion Award, selected by an independent panel, for its exceptional leadership in diversity and inclusion.
“The Summit was an incredible experience,” said John Iino, Reed Smith’s Global Chair, Diversity & Inclusion “To have such an outstanding – and dedicated – group of people come together to share and support one another was amazing. I think the Summit not only allowed us to truly feel how strong we are when we are diverse – but also rejuvenated all of us to continue pushing for a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. We’ve made some great advances, but we still have a long way to go.”
