Claire Rush and Francesca Sabbatino are spearheading the implementation of a diversity initiative in New York State. The project, which is modeled upon the award winning “Ladder Down” program, championed by the Arizona Association of Defense Counsel, is being proposed for the purpose of increasing opportunities for diverse lawyers who practice in the area of personal injury defense. The initiative as presently proposed will take place over the course of 10 months, beginning in September 2014, with a 2-3-hour training session each month dedicated to leadership, mentoring, and rainmaking. We are optimistic that a local bar association will sponsor the initiative and that other specialized bar groups, insurance companies, defense firms and vendors will provide financial support so that we can provide direct training to a group of 24 diverse attorneys. Stayed tuned for more updates!
