Our Diversity and Inclusion Committee has existed for almost 30 years and remains an important focus of firm leadership. Chaired by Kim Walker, our Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer and IP counsel, the Committee meets bi-monthly and oversees programming, mentoring and training focused on diversity and inclusion initiatives and issues.
The committee is comprised of partners (including a member of the Executive Committee), counsel and associates, and is supported by our Chief Legal Personnel Officer, Chief Planning and Culture Officer, Associate Director of Professional Development and Legal Personnel and Recruiting Managers.
Our Women’s Professional Development Committee (WPDC) was established more than a decade ago to offer professional development programs and guidance to ensure Willkie provides a rewarding and empowering experience to women at the firm.
