Haug Partners has been named a Compass Award winner by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), recognizing law firms and corporations that show a strong commitment to building more diverse organizations and a more inclusive legal profession.
LCLD is one of the nation’s leading organizations promoting diversity and consists of more than 430 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession.
The Compass Award recognizes those individuals and organizations that fulfill all of the following requirements in a single calendar year:
- Member attendance at the LCLD Annual Membership Meeting and/or Member attendance at a Leadership Summit and/or submission of a Leader’s Pledge.
- Participation in the LCLD Fellows and Pathfinders Programs.
- Participation in an LCLD Pipeline program (the 1L Scholars program or the Success in Law School Mentoring Program).
Partner Laura Chubb was selected as a 2022 LCLD Fellow. Partner Camille Turner was selected as a 2022 LCLD Pathfinder.
Last year, LCLD’s Board of Directors announced a requirement for each Member to create a public pledge detailing actions they will take to advance diverse talent. We are proud to be among those organizations who created a pledge by the June 2022 deadline. To read Managing Partner Sandy Kuzmich’s pledge, please click here.
Partner Sheila Mortazavi, Chair of Haug Partners’ Diversity Committee, says, “We are honored by LCLD’s recognition of our firm’s efforts to foster a work environment that welcomes a diversity of cultures, perspectives, and ideas, and our on-going commitment to enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the broader legal community.”
