Firm's Chief Diversity Officer Ann Jenrette-Thomas Publishes Column on Self-Promotion for Attorneys of Color
Ann Jenrette-Thomas, the firm's Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, published a two-part blog post for the Legal Executive Institute on the importance of self-promotion for lawyers of color.
In the piece, Ann explores the challenges that lawyers of color face when it comes sharing their successes. These barriers can be due to race and gender based stereotypes and well as cultural norms.

In part two of the post, Ann offers 12 tips that attorneys of color can utilize to self-promote fearlessly.
