I did it! I really did it!!
After a few years of trying to find a place where I can focus primarily on diversity & inclusion and talent management, I have finally succeeded.
Recently, I returned to the Tokyo, Japan office of Morrison & Foerster, where I started my career as a lawyer, as the Head of Inclusion, Professional Development & Recruitment. I am responsible for all aspects of diversity & inclusion and attorney talent management, including professional development and recruitment.
I have already started implementing some activities to make the office more inclusive, and I have been able to use my coaching skills to help a few attorneys and staff with their professional development. I am looking forward to leading discussions about 21st Century Lawyering, including my ExC7eL™ Model.
Certainly many hats to wear, but that is the type of environment where I thrive. I work with exceptionally smart and hard-working colleagues at an organization that encourages and allows me to be me. I am truly living D!perTM!
What more can I say?
