Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner has been named both a 2018 Top Performer and a 2018 Compass Award winner by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). The recognition came at LCLD’s Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
LCLD is dedicated to creating a more diverse legal profession through programs that attract, inspire and nurture talent, thereby helping a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to positions of leadership.
Both the Top Performer and Compass Award designations represent the firm’s involvement in LCLD’s programs and the promotion of LCLD’s mission. Top Performers are LCLD’s most active member corporations and law firms, while the Compass Award recognizes those members who participate in the Fellows and Pathfinder programs, as well as at least one pipeline program (Mentoring or 1L Scholars). Earning both recognitions signals a deep commitment to building more diverse organizations and a more inclusive legal profession.
The firm has been a member of LCLD since its inception, and individual attorneys have been involved with LCLD governance. BCLP participates in the organization’s Fellows and Pathfinder programs, as well as the 1L LCLD Scholars Program and the LCLD Success in Law School Mentoring Program.
