On November 7th, Burns White hosted diverse law students from Duquesne University, the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania State University and West Virginia University at its 14th annual Diversity and Inclusion Reception. The students enjoyed the evening which featured speaker, Wasiullah (Wasi) Mohamed, Director, Community Entrepreneurship for Forward Cities. The event provides law students with an opportunity to network with attorneys, judges and other legal professionals, and to learn more about the diversity initiatives fostered by the firm.
“Diversity is really about all of us,” said Jessica Gangjee, Director of Attorney Recruitment and Professional Development for the firm. “Our firm has a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion, and our annual reception is a chance for us to show that we embrace individual differences, and value diversity of backgrounds and experiences. It’s also an exciting opportunity for us to engage with the future legal talent in the Pittsburgh region.”
