CREATING PATHWAYS THROUGH SPONSORSHIP
Research has shown that in spite of diversity initiatives, junior and mid-level associates from BME backgrounds show disproportionately higher attrition rates than their counterparts. Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, in association with the BSN City Group, will be hosting a sponsorship event aimed at creating and promoting cross-firm sponsoring and mentoring opportunities between senior BME lawyers and mid-level BME associates (between 3-5 PQE). Please email BSN City Group if you would like to be a part of this initiative.
