Brown, Goldstein & Levy attorney Anthony May moderated an online panel discussion about career paths for LGBTQ+ law students and young attorneys, hosted by the Federal Bar Association’s LGBTQ+ law section on September 29.
The webinar was comprised of a diverse group of legal practitioners, including board members of the Federal Bar Association’s LGBTQ+ Law Section. In addition to Anthony, panelists included Donahue Fitzgerald partner Mario Choi, Scanlan Griffiths + Aldridge managing partner Kevin Griffiths, and Meta Tax Policy Manager Jacob Puhl.
Presenters discussed their backgrounds, career paths, and their current roles. They also provided perspectives on what it means to be an LGBTQ+ legal practitioner and their involvement with and in the LGBTQ+ community. Panelists shared their experience from an array of practice areas including public interest, civil litigation, and tax law.
“It was an honor to moderate this panel. As an LGBTQ+ rights advocate, and an LGBTQ+ attorney myself, I am passionate about uplifting the next generation of attorneys who are part of this community,” said Anthony. “It was exciting to hear about how the panelists used their passion for civil rights to carve out their career path. I can certainly relate to that, and I hope those who watched the panel feel inspired to do the same.”
