Loretta Lynch Discusses Delivering on DEI Commitments in LEADERS Magazine
June 29, 2023
Litigation partner Loretta Lynch is featured in the “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion” section of LEADERS magazine’s July, August, September 2023 issue. In a Q&A, Loretta discusses Paul, Weiss’s inclusive culture, the vision and focus of the firm’s Civil Rights and Racial Equity Audits practice, and the business case for diversity.
“Diversity and inclusion are central to our firm’s identity, and we recognize that the breadth of perspectives and skills across the firm makes our work stronger,” Loretta says. As a result, “the world’s leading companies seek us out for their most sensitive and challenging matters.”
Loretta also highlights the value of the firm’s Civil Rights and Racial Equity Audits practice in helping clients address legal challenges and achieve business objectives. “In recent years, companies have faced increasing government and public scrutiny into their corporate DEI commitments,” Loretta says. “We conduct racial equity and other civil rights audits, helping companies, boards, and investment firms proactively identify and mitigate potential legal, reputational, and business risk – and we were among the nation’s first dedicated legal teams to focus on this important work.”
LEADERS magazine, a forum for ideas and opinions of the world’s most influential people, features interviews with global executives.
