Nilda Isidro, a litigation partner who joined the firm as a summer associate in 2005 when she was awarded a Goodwin Diversity Fellowship, was selected as the firm’s 2018 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow. The LCLD Fellows program identifies, trains and advances the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. Since 2011, the program has set more than 280 mid-career lawyers on the path to leadership and is one of the organization’s most important initiatives. Isidro’s peers will include lawyers from corporations and law firms around the country.
Lauren Bowman, a litigation associate, and Martin Gomez, an intellectual property associate, have also been selected as LCLD Pathfinders and will take part in LCLD activities this year. The LCLD Pathfinders program, which launched in 2015, is designed to provide high-potential, early-career lawyers with practical tools for developing and leveraging professional networks, leadership skills and career strategies.
“Nilda is the first Goodwin Diversity Fellowship winner to be named partner at the firm, and we are delighted that she, along with Lauren and Martin, will be working with LCLD to help build a more diverse and inclusive legal profession,” said Goodwin Chairman David Hashmall.
Founded in 2009, LCLD is an organization of more than 265 corporate chief legal officers and law firm chairmen and managing partners who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse legal profession. LCLD’s programs are designed to attract, inspire and nurture legal talent, helping a new and more diverse generation of lawyers ascend to positions of leadership within their organizations. Goodwin has been an active member of LCLD since 2014.
