Partner Edward L. Prokop has been selected for the 2019 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), a national organization comprising corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. Mr. Prokop is a member of the firm’s Corporate Department. He also served as a member of the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and is actively involved in many of Jenner & Block’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
The LCLD Fellows Program has trained more than a thousand mid-career lawyers since its launch. According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the Fellows Program offers participants “a year-long, in-depth program devoted to relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership and the best teachers in the business.” The Fellows Program is one of the organization’s most important initiatives. Jenner & Block Partner Precious S. Jacobs participated in the program in 2018.
Associates Amy Inagaki and Tassity S. Johnson were also selected as members of the 2019 class of the Pathfinder Program, which is designed to train high-performing, early-career lawyers in critical career development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks. 2018 LCLD Fellow Ms. Jacobs will facilitate the Pathfinder program.
