BoMc is pleased to announce that partner, Jessica Winchester, has been named a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow for 2024. The LCLD Fellows program offers high-potential, mid-career attorneys from diverse backgrounds at LCLD Member organizations with professional and personal development opportunities as well as leadership training, relationship-building resources, and access to other LCLD Members, including managing partners and general counsel, for mentoring and guidance.

Selected by the general counsel and managing partners at LCLD Member corporations and law firms, the LCLD Fellows—practicing attorneys with eight to 15 years of experience—participate in training sessions and are given opportunities to interact with managing partners from the country’s most prestigious law firms as well as key legal and business leaders of large U.S. corporations.

“Amid the challenges to DEI, we are once again excited to be able to connect high-potential attorneys from diverse backgrounds with this unmatched year-long program focused on leadership and relationship building,” said Robert J. Grey Jr., president of LCLD. “Since its inception more than two decades ago, the LCLD Fellows program has produced some of the most prominent leaders in our industry and it is gratifying to see another outstanding class this year.”

LCLD Fellows have distinguished themselves within their organizations by being deeply engaged, indispensable to key clients and teams, invested in attorney mentoring and professional development, and on a trajectory toward leadership positions.

LCLD is an organization of more than 400 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have pledged themselves, through our Leaders at the Front initiative and other means, to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. Its action programs are designed to attract, inspire, and nurture the talent in society and within our organizations, thereby helping a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to positions of leadership. By producing tangible results in its institutions, it works to promote inclusiveness in its organizations, its circles of influence, and society, with the ultimate goal of building a more equitable and diverse legal profession.
