A Courageous Conversation with Karen Kennard

Please join us for a Courageous Conversation between shareholder Karen M. Kennard and Nikki Lewis Simon, Shareholder and Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer. Criminal Justice reform is a hot topic right now, but for Karen it has long been a priority for her family with a profound personal impact. Karen and her family have been involved with the Innocence Project of Texas for over the last decade. Her oldest brother, Tim Cole, was the first person in Texas to receive a posthumous exoneration and posthumous pardon. The Texas exoneration compensation system and the Texas Innocence Commission are named in his honor. Karen will courageously share Tim’s story, discuss what criminal justice reform means to her, and how it has impacted her life and that of her family. This Courageous Conversation is one in a series being hosted by Greenberg Traurig’s Social Justice Action Academy and qualifies for one hour of Diversity & Inclusion credit for Associates.
