Barclay Damon Recognized by Albany Business Review for Leadership in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

June 25, 2020—Barclay Damon is being recognized by Albany Business Review as part of its program Leaders in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, which recognizes companies, organizations, and individuals for exceptional commitment to promoting practices that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, community, and business leadership.

Barclay Damon and the other honorees are profiled in Albany Business Review. Sheila Gaddis, chair of Barclay Damon’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee, and Connie Cahill, deputy managing partner, were interviewed for the article “Leaders in Diversity: Barclay Damon.” The firm will also participate in a virtual panel discussion on diversity, equity, and inclusion hosted by Albany Business Review on June 26. Cahill will represent the firm on the panel.

A sample of the areas of Barclay Damon’s diversity and inclusion focus includes:

  • Barclay Damon’s Women’s Forum, a platform for women attorneys at the firm to encourage, mentor, and champion each other in areas such as leadership development, client development, professional development, and marketing.
  • Internships. The firm’s Diversity 1L Summer Associate Program, for example, offers paid summer associate positions to first-year law students from historically underrepresented groups in the legal profession. Other opportunities include the firm’s Diversity 1L Mentoring Program and Pipeline Internship Program for minority high-school students.
  • Pro bono service. In 2019, for the third year in a row, the firm attained 100-percent pro bono participation by all full-time attorneys.

Barclay Damon attorneys team across offices and practices to provide customized, targeted solutions grounded in industry knowledge and a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses. With nearly 300 attorneys, Barclay Damon is a leading law firm that operates from a strategic platform of offices located in the Northeastern United States and Toronto.
