This panel intends to equip LGBTIA+ law students who intend to practice in Big Law with tools that will help them identify a law firm at which they can flourish in their legal practice and formulate an approach to various experiences they may encounter at work, including: navigating social media with work colleagues as “friends” or followers,” using identity-affirming pronouns at the office and with clients, bringing one’s “authentic self” to the workplace, advocating for inclusive health insurance, and updating one’s legal documentation with HR. The panel will also discuss how to identify a mentor to provide guidance regarding such topics. Not for CLE credit.
Speakers: Arielle Adler (Lowenstein Sandler LLP); Michael Hui (Littler Mendelson P.C.); Anastasia Kaup (Duane Morris LLP); Jay Larry (Bracewell LLP); M. Dru Levasseur (National LGBT Bar Association and Foundation); Alan York (Reed Smith LLP)
