Fleming Discusses Gender Diversity in Law Firms

October 2017 ABA Journal News
Senior Counsel Casey Fleming was quoted in an ABA Journal article, “Program Helps Law Firms See Progress in Gender Diversity—but Is It Enough?” about how Foley’s gender equality and diversity initiatives have helped her career.

“I learned from my mentors the importance of being my own advocate and being open with firm leadership about training and other things I’d like to do—and I keep asking,” she said. “I think it’s important that firms have formal programs like Foley does, but just as important is the mentorship, business development, opportunities for client management, and the amount of confidence and support they throw behind us.”
