With a combined 80 years of practice, our panel shares their experiential journey as LGBTQ lawyers over the past three decades.  From our beginnings in law through current day, we discuss common challenges and obstacles and how we navigated them to get where we are today. With the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on June 15, 2020 in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, we share our hope for our future. Topics to be covered are:  The percentage of LGBTQ lawyers nationally, a cultural comparison over time, coming “out” at work and to clients, business development and in-house opportunities.

Speakers: Marla Butler (Thompson Hine); Susan Cirilli (Offit Kurman); Jay Larry (Bracewell LLP); Sarah Moore (Fisher Phillips); Katherine Silver (Jackson Walker)
