Spearheading Sponsorship to Retain Diverse Lawyers


Joi Bourgeois (Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe) emphasizes the critical role of dynamic sponsorship for firms genuinely invested in retaining outstanding diverse lawyers. Where does this insight come from? She does not have what you'd call a traditional resume for leading an international firm's D&I operation. What Joi does have is nearly two decades spent coaching senior partners and law firm leaders and her personal experiences as an African-American lawyer, all of which she brings to bear in spearheading Orrick's innovative push to become a model for law firm diversity and inclusion.
