“I am honored to have been chosen as a leader of influence among so many other attorneys who are committed to fostering diversity and inclusion in LA,” said Mr. Abrahms. “To me, diversity does not only mean representation, it includes diversity of thought and experience – I applaud the LABJ for their efforts to showcase so many of my peers who are helping to move the needle on diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
“I am very pleased for Adam and wish to congratulate both him and the other honorees for their contributions and accomplishments,” said Carrie Valiant, Chair of the firm’s Diversity and Professional Development Committee and member of the firm’s Board of Directors. “EBG is dedicated to supporting the personal and professional growth of attorneys at all levels, creating an environment in which we can combine our different experiences, diverse voices, and unique strengths to do good for our profession and our communities. We are fully committed to recruiting, mentoring, promoting, and—above all—investing in diverse talent. This is a strategic imperative, as consequential as anything we do as a firm.”
