Diversity Committee

I am pleased to announce the formation of the Diversity Committee, chaired by Anne Atkinson. Anne was recently appointed as Co-Chair of the Membership & Diversity Committee, which has been split into two Committees, with Rosemarie Tully and Jessica Thaler as Co-Chairs of the Membership Committee and Anne as Chair of the Diversity Committee.

Anne, who is a new member of the EASL Executive Committee, is also a member of the Executive Committee of the NYSBA Corporate Counsel Section, where she has been involved in diversity initiatives. Anne is Of Counsel in the Entertainment, Media and Communications Group at Pryor Cashman. Anne's practice focuses on film and television finance and production.

I encourage you to join EASL's newly formed Diversity Committee. If you wish further information, please contact Anne Atkinson at aatkinson@pryorcashman.com.

EASL MENTORING PROGRAM

As part of NYSBA's Diversity Initiative, the EASL Section has initiated a Mentoring Program, and is looking for members who are interested in either volunteering to be mentors or mentees. Mentors should have at least five years of practical experience in an EASL-related field, and mentees should be lawyers in transition, junior attorneys, law students, or members who feel they can benefit from a more senior attorney. Mentors and mentees must be EASL members.

The time commitment is a minimum of one hour per month for one year.

Attached are copies of the forms that you will be able to complete at:
