United States: Seyfarth Names Lawyers To Leadership Council On Legal Diversity
Last Updated: February 28 2017

Seyfarth Shaw LLP is pleased to announce that lawyers Julie G. Yap (Labor & Employment Partner - Sacramento), Christopher Bordenave (Real Estate Associate - Los Angeles) and Ephraim Pierre (Labor & Employment Associate - New York) have been named to the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD).

Yap was named a member of the 2017 class of Fellows, participating in a landmark program created by LCLD to identify, train, and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. The LCLD Fellows program, which has trained more than a thousand mid-career attorneys since 2011, is one of LCLD's most important initiatives.

 Bordenave and Pierre were named members of the 2017 class of Pathfinders, participating in a program designed by LCLD to train early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks. The LCLD Pathfinder Program is now in its second year as a full-scale program, having been piloted in 2015 among a select number of LCLD Member law firms and corporations. It is an initiative that has filled a gap in LCLD programming, targeting junior associates and the youngest members of corporate law departments.

 "It is with great pride, that we nominate Julie, Chris and Ephraim to these important roles," said Laura Maechtlen, co-chair of Seyfarth's Diversity and Inclusion Action Team. "These are outstanding lawyers who exemplify our firm's core values and will serve the Council well."

 Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 260 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. For information, visit www.lcldnet.org.

 Seyfarth's diversity efforts focus on recruiting, mentoring and promotion, community support, business development, and communications/engagement. To learn more, click here.
