Embracing Inclusion in the Legal Profession

Greater Cincinnati Minority Counsel Program

2018 Annual Meeting

Hatchett SpeakingWe were thrilled to have Judge Glenda Hatchett speak to our group. Judge Hatchett shared her experiences as the highest-ranking woman of color at Delta Air Lines, the first African-American Chief Presiding Judge of a state court in Georgia, her work on various corporate boards, and even her elementary school education in Georgia's segregated public schools to teach the lawyers in attendance about making their own success stories despite whatever circumstances they may come from, what obstacles they may have faced, or how others may view them. Judge Hatchett's inspiring talk helped to guide lawyers of all backgrounds to constantly strive to achieve the highest and best they can be in their profession.

This panel discussion moderated by Judge Hatchett featured several successful women of color who have all carved their own path to success at major law firms, in-house positions, and in academia.
