Chambers Diversity joins forces with Baker Botts for USA diversity event

I am delighted to announce details of our second diversity summit with Baker Botts. The event takes place on Thursday, June 16 at The Yale Club of New York. The summit will be followed by our Chambers Diversity Awards: USA 2016 evening reception.

Baker Botts’ Diversity Counsel, Sylvia James, was recently named as a Top 50 diversity professional in The Global Diversity List supported by The Economist.


Vasser-educated James is a tireless advocate for women, minorities, LGBT and under-represented individuals in the legal field. She built a global diversity programme for law firm Baker Botts, who recognised the importance of diversity for their success. She was President of the Association of Law Firm Diversity Professionals (ALFDP); a member of Duke Law School Alumni Board of Directors; and is speaker at numerous seminars, conferences, and forums.

We will be announcing more details about the programme in the following weeks.
