June 2, 2017

Eric Holder, Covington partner and 82nd Attorney General of the United States, was the keynote speaker at Out Leadership’s 2017 U.S. LGBT+ Senior Leader Summit on May 5, 2017. Covington partner Jean Veta introduced Mr. Holder and his co-presenter, Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post Editorial Board. Mr. Holder spoke about the legal challenges facing the LGBT+ community and the importance of moral leadership in advancing civil rights.

Covington is a sponsor of Out Leadership, a global organization that brings together senior and emerging leaders from the world’s most influential investment banks, corporations, and law firms to promote LGBT+ inclusive practices to build business opportunity, cultivate talent, and drive equality forward. Jean Veta is a member of Out Leadership’s US Leadership Committee. 

The Summit was hosted by Time Warner in New York City and attended by more than 300 senior leaders from Out Leadership’s more than 70 member companies. Other Covington lawyers joining the event included Bill Collins, Christopher DeCresce, Stephen Infante, Michael Reed, Bill Sturman, J.D. Weinberg, and Erika Skougard.
