In an interview with Legal Management, partner Deborah St. Lawrence Thompson, chair of Nelson Mullins’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, and Katerina Taylor, director of diversity, equity and inclusion, share how the firm is working to bring diversity to the forefront.
“Obviously, there are things we have to re-shift [in order] for people to think from a different perspective. And that does take time to sit down and actually listen to people and hear how change impacts everybody. Because nobody necessarily likes change,” Taylor said.
St. Lawrence Thompson and Taylor noted, “We have really expanded and enhanced our affinity groups. How we communicate. We have a newsletter that highlights all of our diverse attorneys, our cultures. We talk about rising stars. And that is shared firmwide.”
