Kirkland is a national sponsor of Posse, an organization that identifies, recruits and trains student leaders from urban public high schools to form multicultural teams called “Posses” that are trained and prepared to pursue academics at top-tier universities and help promote cross-cultural communication on campus.
Kirkland Los Angeles, Chicago, and D.C. sponsor a variety of programming through Posse, including workshops at which Kirkland attorneys and staff provide resume feedback, career guidance, and interview training. After attending the inspiring gala, the New York attendees expressed an interest in getting more involved with Posse.
