Covington Welcomes Prospective Summer Associates at Diversity Event

September 11, 2015

Covington held its inaugural Diversity Event for prospective 2016 summer associates, with 21 law school students from 18 schools around the nation invited to Washington, DC to learn more about the firm’s commitment to diversity and excellence. The half-day event kicked-off with a warm welcome from Tim Hester, Chairman of the Management Committee, as well as introductory remarks from Keir Gumbs and Catherine Dargan.

The students then heard from a panel of diverse associates who shared their experiences regarding firm life and culture. Drawn from a wide array of practice areas, the associate panel consisted of Cyril Djoukeng, Bianca Nunes, and Lala Qadir. Each associate spoke about their background, interests, and types of client matters—giving prospective summer associates insights into the breadth of legal and professional experiences and perspectives at Covington.

Following a firm-wide reception, students were hosted for small-group dinners at the homes of Covington partners. Many students noted this was the first time they had attended an event like this and that they appreciated the opportunity to ask questions from the associate panel and meet other diverse lawyers at the firm in addition to meeting other prospective summer associates. This event is part of Covington’s ongoing commitment to strengthen and build diversity initiatives across the firm.
