BOSTON – Oct. 26, 2018 – Greenberg Traurig’s Boston office hosted the kick-off reception for the Boston Lawyers Group’s (BLG) new seminar series, “The Pathway Up.” This program aims to support Boston’s legal community of color and drive forward diversity within all ranks of the legal system. The first panel discussion was moderated by Chinh H. Pham, chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Emerging Technology Group, and co-chair of the firm’s Boston Intellectual Property (IP) Group. Pham led a discussion focused on the career paths of diverse attorneys in Boston.
BLG says its mission is to support the efforts of its member organizations to identify, recruit, advance, and retain attorneys of color. Innovation and collaboration are the key elements of BLG's foundation. BLG members are ultimately responsible for turning their organizations' objectives into action.
Panelists at the Oct. 25 event included attorneys from several Boston-area law firms: Yalonda T. Howze, Renee Inomata, Luke Cadigan, and Elizabeth J. Reza.
