Pipeline, Mentoring Programs Models for SuccessAugust 31, 2011 – In The News
Fox Rothschild was featured for having a model mentoring program after hosting the NALP/Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Program in May. The program partnered nearby diverse high school classes from the KIPP DuBois Collegiate Academy with the firm to encourage understanding of the law and promote careers in the legal field.
Marilou Watson said, "Exposing students to attorneys helps to garner interest in our profession. And, seeing lawyers who look like them underscores the importance of diversity and inclusion."
Watson serves as co-chair of the firm's Diversity Committee along with Gregory Williams. Watson also serves on the Office of Diversity's National Symposium advisory board, which brings together a panel of local and non-local chief legal officers and law firm managing partners to discuss the importance of collaboration to advance diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
