Jenner & Block Partner Jolene Negre Named a 2014 LCLD Fellow

Jenner & Block LLP is proud to announce that Partner Jolene E. Negre has been selected for the 2014 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), a national organization made up of the legal profession’s top general counsel and managing partners.  Jolene, a member of the firm’s Corporate Department and of the Content, Media & Entertainment Practice, joins a class of more than 170 attorneys—the largest in the program’s history.

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 yearlong 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.”
