Emily Cooke Moderated Virtual Panel Discussing Diversity in Maine’s Private Sector

As part of the firm’s diversity partnership with University of Maine School of Law and law firms Bernstein Shur and Verrill, Pierce Atwood was pleased to host a virtual discussion on diversity in Maine’s private sector with some of Maine’s top business leaders.

Business Practice Group partner Emily Cooke, who is also the partner in charge of the firm’s pro bono program, moderated the panel that included:

•    Tony Giampetruzzi, Head of Internal Communications, Diversity & Inclusion and Engagement, Hannaford
•    Sarah Wellings, Associate General Counsel, The Jackson Laboratory
•    Gimbala Sankare, Head of Global Talent Acquisition and Diversity & Inclusion, WEX

This program was the last in a series of discussions hosted by the law firms involved in this year’s D1L program, which offered summer associate positions to first-year law students who are members of historically underrepresented groups in the legal profession.
