New York, NY (June 7, 2021) – Epstein Becker Green (“EBG”) is proud to announce that Karl Riehl, Director of Practice Management, has been selected for inclusion in Crain’s New York Business “2021 Notable LGBTQ Leaders and Executives” list. This special editorial feature celebrates a diverse array of LGBTQ professionals who have made significant contributions to advancing equality within the workplace and within the New York area.
Crain’s chose Mr. Riehl for his extensive history of professional, civic, and philanthropic achievements, including serving as Board Member and President of the LGBT Bar Association & Foundation of Greater New York (“LeGal”), serving on the Essex County LGBTQ Advisory Board, and most recently starting his tenure as President-Elect of the National Association for Law Placement (“NALP”). Mr. Riehl has held a variety of leadership roles since becoming a NALP member in 2002, most recently serving on the Board of Directors. He is also a founding member and chair of the EBG LGBTQ+ Outreach Group and an active member of EBG’s National Diversity & Professional Development Committee.
In his many years of service, Mr. Riehl’s commitment to improving the administration of the law, advancing the careers of law students and attorneys, and ensuring equality for all has created a positive, lasting impact—both within each of these organizations and throughout the legal industry.
He is a frequent speaker on various topics within professional development and recruiting in the legal industry as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion, specifically addressing issues affecting the LGBTQ community.
“I am extremely grateful and appreciative for being recognized as a notable leader in the LGBTQ community,” said Mr. Riehl. “While my core professional responsibilities at EBG center around hiring and developing talent, my strengths center around fostering relationships and further building a culture where it is easy for those relationships to grow. I’m constantly thinking about ways to strengthen relationships, and it is not just about building a team or organization that is fiscally successful—it is about showing people we care about their wellness and their happiness as well as their professional success. When we understand each other and value unique perspectives, that is when we shine.”
