I, Scott Shapiro, personally commit to the following:

Personal Commitments

As a new member to LCLD and with my term as Managing Partner ending on December 31 of this year, I find myself in a strange position in terms of drafting a pledge. As a result, my pledge is focused on transition, and ensuring that the commitment to diversity, and the commitment to action on diversity, survive the transition. My personal pledge is to insert the topic of DEI into our firm's discussion on leadership and to advocate to my selected replacement that LCLD and its programs remain a priority for the firm. In the interim, I have also been focused on building a culture of inclusion for our diverse attorneys, and appointing more women than men to leadership roles.
