Lauren Hopkins and Hana Vizcarra Recognized by Leadership Council on Legal Diversity

Lauren Hopkins, a Principal in Beveridge & Diamond’s San Francisco office has been selected to participate in the 2017 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellows Program. Inaugurated in 2011, the LCLD’s Fellows Program is an ambitious, highly-structured mentoring program that is designed to increase diversity at the leadership level of the nation’s law firms and corporate legal departments.

Hana Vizcarra, an Associate in Beveridge & Diamond's Washington, DC office, has been selected as a member of the 2017 class of Pathfinders, participating in a new program designed by the LCLD to train early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including programming on leadership and network development. According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Pathfinder Program offers participants “intensive in-person training, online experiential learning, and opportunities to network with peers and esteemed LCLD Fellows in small group gatherings. “We believe it’s a program that can help catapult a person’s career forward.”

Paula Schauwecker, Co-Chair of Beveridge & Diamond's Diversity & Inclusion Committee, said, “Lauren and Hana care deeply about diversity and inclusion issues affecting members of the legal community. We are very proud of them and their efforts to advance and support those issues at B&D. The Firm’s involvement with LCLD has contributed greatly to the success of our diversity and inclusion efforts both within and outside of the firm."
