“We all have something to learn from each other.”
In your opinion, what more needs to be done within the legal profession in terms of creating a more diverse and inclusive work environment for the LGBTQ+ community?
There is an opportunity in every profession to exercise conscious inclusion. We know the value diverse thought can bring to our work. The decisions we make with people every day, big or small, are helping to shape the future. When we pause in those moments and make decisions that consciously include new and different perspectives, we lay the groundwork for a more inclusive and exciting future.
What is your advice for allies who want to support the LGBTQ+ community?
Lean in and be authentically curious. We all have something to learn from each other. When we open new conversations with authentic curiosity, we form new relationships, learn from each other, and, ultimately, grow as professionals and as people.
