Kelley Drye and Warren LLP has chosen Janine Fletcher and Ryan Steinman as members of the 2017 class of Pathfinders, participating in a program designed by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) to train early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including leadership and professional network development. Janine and Ryan join a class of 147 attorneys around the country named 2017 LCLD Pathfinders.
At Kelley Drye, we are committed to diversity and inclusion at all levels from recruitment to staffing client matters. Janine and Ryan both contribute impressive legal skills and unique perspectives,” said Lew Rose, firm managing partner of Kelley Drye & Warren LLP. “Congratulations to Janine and Ryan on being selected as Kelley Drye’s 2017 LCLD Pathfinders.”
According to LCLD Program Director Lori Lorenzo, “the curriculum for this program has been very carefully designed to accommodate early-career lawyers from both in-house legal departments and law firms. While recognizing the leadership training and professional development needs that both groups share, the Pathfinder Program also focuses on the disparate needs of the two groups in breakout training sessions."
The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity is an organization of more than 265 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners— the leadership of the profession—who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse US legal profession. Our action programs are designed to attract, inspire, and nurture the talent in society and within our organizations, thereby helping a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to positions of leadership. By producing tangible results in the lives of talented individuals, we work to promote inclusiveness in our institutions, our circles of influence, and our society, with the ultimate goal of building a more open and diverse legal profession.
