Potter Anderson Recognized by LCLD as a Compass Award Winner and Top Performer

October 28, 2021

Potter Anderson has been named a Top Performer and Compass Award winner by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, recognizing those law firms and corporations showing a strong commitment to building more diverse organizations and a more inclusive legal profession.

The Top Performer award recognizes organizations in the top 20 percent for participation in LCLD programs and activities. The Compass Award recognizes organizations that fulfill a list of core requirements in a single calendar year, including participating in the LCLD Fellows, Pathfinders and Pipeline programs.

LCLD is one of the nation’s leading organizations promoting diversity and consists of more than 350 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession.

Last month, LCLD’s Board of Directors announced a requirement for members to create a public pledge detailing actions they will take to advance diverse talent. We are proud to be among those organizations that created a pledge in advance of the June 2022 deadline. Kathleen Furey McDonough’s pledge is online here.
