Just want to share a happy story - have spent the past 3 months slogging and fighting with red tape to launch our Asian affinity network/ERG. We had our hybrid launch event yesterday. 80+ people attended and we got direct congratulations from the participants, and from the regional managing partner and the Global Chair (!). It was a slog and much further to go but happy to take the small victory for now

I will always separate Black from POC. We are not the same. Because far too many POC are still racist/prejudice.

Recently during a call of the list (massive zoom, attorneys check in for their cases) an attorney called me out prior to her checking in saying it looked like someone didn’t belong/should not be on the call - me! Obviously, my camera was on. It was clearly a racial incident & others reached out to me affirming/apologizing. The Chief Justice (a poc) “investigated” and concluded my camera was off and doesn’t want to disrupt the bar. The racist in question said she saw me. Do I elevate this issue?

Any business development advice for a minority female partner-level transactional lawyer? I have strong resume, incredible deal sheet, worked at the best firms.

Seems like potential clients (mostly all white men) won't give me a chance at a deal. If they'd send me just one deal, I could win them over, but can't get my foot in the door. Advice?
