Reed Smith | Diversity & Inclusion Annual Report 2018

16 Reed Smith Diversity & Inclusion Annual Report 2018 Our Diverse Scholars Program began in 2002. In 2016 we renamed the program to honor our late partner Deborah Broyles, who was our firm’s global director of diversity & inclusion. Deborah was a trailblazer in diversity efforts in the legal profession and her contributions to promoting diversity in the profession and throughout the United States were significant and transformative. Each year, we award $20,000 to one or more outstanding law school students in the United States who demonstrate academic excellence and a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The award supports the honorees’ law school- related expenses, and we also grant a paid summer associate position at our firm between the students’ second and third years of study.
