Sedgwick New York Diversity Committee Supports NYC Bar's Thurgood Marshall Summer Intern Program
On July 12th, members of the Sedgwick New York Diversity Committee participated in the Thurgood Marshall Summer Internship Program Speed Networking event held by the New York City Bar Association at ABC News. New York Partner Jessika Moon, Associate Katelin O’Rourke Gorman and Director of Administration Marti Gillen spoke with many of the more than sixty Thurgood Interns at the event, which focused on providing interview and networking skills to the interns.
The nationally lauded Thurgood Marshall Program, which places high-achieving, inner-city high school students with legal employers for the summer, is run by the NYC Bar’s Diversity Pipeline Initiatives Committee (of which Katelin in a member), and is part of the NYC Bar’s continuing efforts to enhance the diversity of the legal profession. As part of its continuing involvement with the program, Sedgwick New York will host two Thurgood Interns later this summer as part of the program’s “job shadow day” exercise.
