Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality? We can donate money or time individually, but a small group of us at my firm are brainstorming ideas that would make a bigger impact with some sort of large scale effort. Such a daunting concept. Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!

I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
