Halloran & Sage attorneys recently participated in a wide of range of diversity programs in conjunction with the Lawyers Collaborative For Diversity, Inc (LCD).

The Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity was formed by concerned lawyers to answer the call for diversity. Their current challenge is to increase the recruitment, retention and promotion or lawyers of color. Their mission is to unite the resources, energy and commitment of the State's leading law firms, corporations, public sector entities, law schools and state bar associations in the joint mission of making Connecticut a more attractive place for attorneys of color and women to practice law and find satisfying professional opportunities.

Recently, at the LCD annual meeting, Attorneys, Carl Ficks, Jr., Brian Rich, William Wilson, II and Al DiVincentis participated in an open forum facilitating the advancement of the diversity dialogue. The discussion focused on the importance of mentoring during law school so that law students of color have every opportunity to succeed academically and develop strong networking skills to help them become successful members of the bar.

A variety of topics were covered, including job searching, life as lawyers and public sector opportunities for law students of color.

Recently, Attorneys Alfred DiVincentis, Jeffrey Gostyla and Human Resources participated in a discussion entitled Creating Best Practices for Evaluations of Associates of Color.

In addition, Halloran & Sage is proud to sponsor the LCD Edwin Archer Randolph Diversity Award Celebration. This award ceremony honors and celebrates significant contributions and accomplishments in the advancement of attorneys of color within the legal community.
