LCLD Selects Three Covington Lawyers for Diversity Programs

March 13, 2017

Covington partner Aaron Lewis has been selected for this year’s Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellows Program. Based in the Los Angeles office, Aaron focuses his practice on white collar defense and investigations. The LCLD Fellows Program, which has trained more than 800 mid-career lawyers since 2011, is one of LCLD’s most important initiatives, connecting high-potential lawyers from preeminent organizations for a year-long professional development series. The program is designed to build relationships and leadership skills that can be passed down to future generations of leaders in the legal profession.

Rani Gupta, an associate in Covington’s Silicon Valley office, and Jenny Holmes, an associate in the Washington office, have been selected for this year’s LCLD Pathfinder Program. Targeted to diverse, high-potential lawyers with three to five years of experience, the Pathfinder Program offers participants the opportunity to enhance their leadership and professional networking skills. Over the course of a year, the program provides professional development opportunities with the three core goals of leadership, personal brand growth, and relationship building.

“I appreciate the opportunity to participate in the Pathfinders program and its goal of building a more diverse and inclusive legal profession,” said Rani. Jenny too is “excited for the opportunity to participate in LCLD's Pathfinder program” and is “looking forward to connecting with and learning from other diverse attorneys from across the country.”

Tammy Albarrán, Co-Chair of Diversity Initiatives at Covington and leader of the firm’s Anti-Corruption Practice Group’s Latin America practice, and Anne Lee, Hiring Partner and partner in the firm’s Antitrust practice, will serve as a program facilitators to guide and mentor Rani and Jenny through the Pathfinder Program. Tammy was a 2015 LCLD Fellow, and Anne was a 2016 LCLD Fellow.

LCLD is an organization of more than 265 chief legal officers and firm managing partners dedicated to promoting diversity within the legal profession. Read more about the LCLD 2017 program here.
