Seyfarth Shaw, LLP issued the following announcement on Feb. 14.
Seyfarth Shaw LLP is pleased to announce that lawyers Uma Chandrasekaran (Labor & Employment Partner - Chicago), Oluwafunmito "Funto" P. Seton (Labor & Employment Associate - Houston) and Honore Hishamunda (Labor & Employment Associate - Atlanta) have been selected to the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD).
Chandrasekaran was named a member of the 2019 class of Fellows, participating in a landmark program created by LCLD to identify, train, and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. The Fellows Program is designed to connect high-potential attorneys from preeminent organizations for a year-long professional development series that focuses on leadership and relationship building. The program, which has trained more than a thousand mid-career attorneys since 2011, is one of LCLD’s most important initiatives.
Seton and Hishamunda were named members of the 2019 class of Pathfinders, participating in a program designed by LCLD to train early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks. The Pathfinder Program is designed to connect high-potential attorneys from preeminent organizations for a six- to seven-month professional development series that focuses on foundational leadership skills, professional networks and relationship building skills, and career development strategies. The program is now in its fourth year as a full-scale program, having been piloted in 2015 among a select number of LCLD Member law firms and corporations. It is an initiative that has filled a gap in LCLD programming, targeting junior associates and the youngest members of corporate law departments.
