Law & Corporate Affairs Department
2013-14 Diversity Mentorship Program
Starbucks Law & Corporate Affairs Department is pleased to announce the third year of the Starbucks Diversity Mentorship Program. This program will connect Starbucks in-house lawyers with private practice junior attorneys from diverse backgrounds in one-to-one mentorship relationships. Starbucks in-house lawyers are one of the most experienced and diverse groups of attorneys in the region, and are eager to share their insights into learning the practice of law, succeeding in law firm and other private practice environments, and for those who are interested, pursuing in-house career opportunities.
This program will foster direct, informal interactions over a one-year period to help diverse junior attorneys learn their craft and network in the local community of legal professionals and business leaders. The program is open to all lawyers in private practice in their first three years as an attorney, and who are members of one or more minority bar associations or diversity affinity groups.
If you are interested in applying, please submit a cover letter and resume to Kent Nordby at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, June 21. In your cover letter, please identify your current area of practice (and your desired area, if different), your general interest in receiving mentoring, and the minority bar association(s) or affinity group(s) to which you belong. If you have any questions, you may contact Katina Thornock, co-chair of the Starbucks L&CA Diversity Committee, at email@example.com.
