Gary Zhao Interviewed by the Legal Executive Institute of Thomson Reuters on Diverse Bar Associations
Gary Zhao was recently interviewed by the Legal Executive Institute of Thomson Reuters on his involvement in diverse bar associations. In the interview Gary discusses minority bar associations, professional development and educating legal employers on how to elevate Asian Americans to law firm leadership positions.
Gary recently joined the Advisory Board for the Next Gen Leadership: Advancing Lawyers of Color, which is an initiative to help educate legal employers on how to best recruit, retain, and promote Asian American Lawyers. In the interview Gary says, “There are many Asian American attorneys who became federal judges and state judges, but not very many Asian American attorneys have rose to the highest ranks of law firm leadership or legal department leadership as general counsel, associate general counsel, or deputy general counsels, or managing partners at law firms.”
