BoMc is pleased to announce that Les Bookoff has pledged his personal commitment to the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s (LCLD) Leaders at the Front initiative. Leaders at the Front is an initiative designed to dismantle systemic barriers preventing underrepresented attorneys from achieving the highest levels of leadership within law firms and corporate legal departments.

“We have created a practical DEI action plan that seeks to empower diverse attorneys and remove obstacles that hinder their success. We want to level the playing field, allowing everyone to flourish in their careers, have a meaningful voice, and reach the upper echelons of leadership within our organization and in the wider legal profession. I also encourage my colleagues and peers to join me in making a similar pledge so that together we can have real impact on advancing DEI,” says Les.

Through the Leaders at the Front initiative, LCLD is asking its more than 400 Members, who include corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners, to make personal commitments to DEI and implement organizational changes that are specific, meaningful, and measurable. These Leaders’ Pledges are available on LCLD’s Leaders at the Front website.
