Newark, NJ (October 20, 2021) – Epstein Becker Green (“EBG”) is proud to announce that Karl Riehl, Director of Practice Management, has been selected for inclusion in the Insider NJ Insider OUT 100: LGBTQ Power List. This special editorial feature celebrates a diverse array of LGBTQ professionals who have made significant contributions to advancing equality within the workplace and in New Jersey.
“I am honored to be included in this list of peers, civil servants, and elected officials whose tremendous efforts to create change and promote equality are renowned,” said Karl. “I strive to build and foster relationships along with a culture where those relationships can grow openly—one that is strengthened by understanding the value of each other’s’ unique perspectives. I appreciate being recognized as a notable leader in the LGBTQ community and look forward to working alongside my fellow honorees in the future.”
“From advocacy to government service to the private sector, these individuals have distinguished themselves as leaders in our state’s vibrant LGBTQIA+ community,” Governor [Phil] Murphy said. “My Administration will continue to work closely with all honorees to build a stronger, fairer, and more inclusive New Jersey.”
Karl was chosen 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”). He 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. Crain’s New York Business selected Karl for inclusion in its “2021 Notable LGBTQ Leaders and Executives” list for his work in New York City.
