Our in-house training provides the opportunity to learn from the best in the industry, which in turn enables us to benefit from early courtroom experience.
I am the local coordinator for the Los Angeles Asian American Affinity Group, participant in the Women’s Leadership Initiative, and member of the Associates’ Committee. All of these groups have been wonderful resources for me during my time at Kirkland. I have had meaningful discussions in these groups, ranging from substantive programming, to current issues, to catching up on lives outside the office. The groups provide a wonderful opportunity to meet attorneys from other practice areas within the office, as well as attorneys from different offices across the world.
I recently attended the summer diversity retreat in Chicago, where I not only met other associates and summer associates of many different backgrounds, but was also able to participate in very frank discussions about what the Firm is doing well when it comes to diversity, and where we can continue to improve our efforts to recruit and retain diverse talent.
