When Morgan Lewis formed its Mobilizing for Equality Task Force, it was a natural way for associate James Nortey to bring his community activism to the firm. As a leader of the Community Engagement & Volunteerism working group on the task force, James shares the knowledge he’s gained over the last decade, detailing ways to be an ally in the fight for racial justice. Here, James shares how the events of the last year have intensified his work for equity.
For the sixth consecutive year, the Fortune–US Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership selected Morgan Lewis and Firm Chair Jami McKeon to mentor an emerging female leader.

But having an all-virtual program this year meant there was time for a much more in-depth connection with Guatemalan lawyer Gabriela Roca.
As 2020 draws to a close, join us in aspiring to a new year filled with harmony, understanding, kindness, and appreciation for everyone, everywhere.
