Sedgwick IDC and Women’s Forum Host Student Diversity Event
Sedgwick Inclusion and Diversity and Women’s Forum partnered with Fordham University School of Law on March 28, 2017, for a panel discussion titled “Pathways to Success From Diverse Perspectives.” Five of the schools affiliated organizations — the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA), the Black Law Students Association, the Latin American Law Students Association, Fordham Law Women and the Fordham OUTLaws (LGBT) — also hosted.
Panelists included the Honorable Denny Chin, U.S. Circuit Judge for the Second Circuit; Christopher Chan, vice president and assistant general counsel for the New York Daily News and U.S. News & World Report; Anna Mercado Clark, associate attorney with Phillips Lytle LLP; and Brenda Gill, partner at Burgher Gray Jaffe LLP. The event offered a unique opportunity for attendees to learn how highly successful legal careers were built and maintained.
Fordham’s APALSA and the Honorable Denny Chin also presented a reenactment of the Vietnamese Fishermen’s Association v. Knights of the Ku Klux Klan trial.
