As Winston Churchill once said, “[N]ever let a good crisis go to waste.” And so, in Barnes & Thornburg's 2020 summer Diversity and Inclusion publication, our Firm Diversity Partner Dawn R. Rosemond emphasizes how the tremendous, overwhelming and impactful the pandemics of COVID-19 and the outcry for racial justice have been – on our firm, our teammates, our clients and indeed, across the country and the world.
In the pages that follow, you’ll hear reflections from our colleagues on this time and in the midst of these unprecedented challenges, and you’ll learn how we’ve repeatedly risen to the occasion – and will continue to do so.
All of this is beautifully enveloped – front and back – by the artwork of Theoplis Smith of Phresh Laundry.
Considering all that we are collectively navigating, our hope is that you are touched, impacted and moved by what you experience in this publication. And without question, we hope it provides encouragement that change can, is and will continue to happen for the better.
