Anyone here at Holland & Knight? I’m considering a move but have recently read stories about mass exits by Black attorneys - no one has really explained why. I’m a Black female, looking to move for better exit opportunities, firm culture, international and emerging technology work. Any insight including billable requirements will be appreciated. Target location is the Denver office.

I don’t work in that market, but I think it will be tough to find a diverse office in Denver. It’s a very white city.

I get that. I’m already in Denver, so that can’t be helped. I’m more interested in finding out if there are red flags that I should be thinking about for this particular firm. I read their D&I statement and it came off ambiguous - like they were trying hard not to commit to anything. On the other hand, they do seem to have tangible benchmarks that they are trying to achieve and a report detailing their D&I progress, which is something. I just want to be sure there isn’t a glaring issue that I’m missing.

Would you be willing to work remotely full time? Lots of firms offering that and you don’t necessarily need an office in Denver.

I hear ya and a valid concern

I am! Happy to answer any questions. Sent you a DM.

As an ABCD myself, I feel like a lot of ABCDs tend to be generally pretty cold and unfriendly, especially to other desis. They tend to hang out in their own cliques that share their same disdain for desi culture and look down on their own kind. Yet at the same time they preach about progressivism to no end. Generally I’ve found recent migrants to be far more warm and welcoming. Anyone else feels that this is the case? Again, not generalizing here as I’m an ABCD myself.
