Frost Brown Todd LLC is proud to announce that Kimera Hall, member attorney in the Indianapolis office, has been selected to the 2014 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). With 215 Members, LCLD is a national organization made up of the general counsel and managing partners of the leading corporations and law firms, working towards the goal of a more open, diverse, and inclusive generation of legal professionals in the United States. The 2014 class of fellows is the largest since the inception of the program, with over 170 promising young attorneys from across the nation.
“I am excited to have been chosen for the LCLD Fellows Program,” says Hall. “I am grateful for the opportunity that the program will provide to learn from and collaborate with others in the industry that have a passion for developing a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. I know that the program will be beneficial to my own personal development and at the same time will allow me to be a part of the program’s overall contribution to the development of the broader legal community. “
Launched in 2011, the LCLD Fellows program is an ambitious, highly structured initiative built to increase diversity at the leadership levels of the nation’s law firms and corporate legal departments. Over the course of the year-long program, participants will be challenged to improve their professional brand, build relationships that enhance professional development, participate in corporate learning experiences, and sharpen stewardship and leadership skills.
“Our Fellows program is a unique learning experience designed to empower a new generation of lawyers,” said Brad Smith, LCLD Chair and Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Microsoft Corporation. “These talented individuals have been singled out for leadership by their organizations, and represent a broad spectrum of backgrounds that are as diverse as the country they serve.”
The Fellows initiative is one of several launched by LCLD since the organization’s founding in 2009. Other programs include a national mentoring initiative serving more than 2,000 mentors and mentees, a 1L Scholars program involving more than 200 first-year law students, and special programming for Members through CLE presentations and other platforms.
