The firm is proud to share that three lawyers have been selected to join The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s (LCLD) 2022 programs. Jackie Hickman was named a 2022 LCLD Fellow, and Courtney Turkington and Hayley Landry have been selected to join the 2022 class of Pathfinders. These programs provide opportunities for diverse lawyers to receive professional and personal development opportunities, leadership training, and relationship-building opportunities.
Now in its eleventh year, the LCLD Fellows Program is an ambitious, highly structured initiative built to increase diversity at the leadership levels of the nation’s law firms and corporate legal departments.
The LCLD Pathfinder Program is designed to train attorneys in critical career-development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks. Pathfinders are selected by leaders at LCLD member corporations and law firms and have been identified as diverse, early-career emerging leaders who have, or have the potential to, distinguish themselves within their organization.
The LCLD was founded in 2009 by the country’s leading general counsel and managing partners to provide the next generation of diverse attorneys with the tools and knowledge to excel in the legal profession. The council has more than 400 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who have made the commitment to creating a truly diverse legal profession. Liskow is continually seeking opportunities to expand its knowledge and awareness around diversity and inclusion and the firm is proud to collaborate with organizations, such as the LCLD, that are also committed to making the legal industry more diverse and inclusive.
