Past programming includes:
- Historian, social activist, and educator Blair Imani presented “An Intersectional Approach to Antiracism.” Imani discussed her lived experience as a queer Muslim woman of color and how each of her identities inform her antiracist actions.
- The Black Attorney Affinity Group and Women@Weil co-hosted a pre-screening of Harriet for attorneys and clients.
- The Black Attorney Affinity Group and LGBTQ+ affinity group co-hosted an intimate dinner with SoundCloud General Counsel Antonious Porch.
For Women’s History Month 2021, Weil was honored to host Kimberlé Crenshaw, a UCLA and Columbia law school professor who is a leading authority on race, racism and the law. Professor Crenshaw developed the term "intersectionality" to describe the simultaneous double bind of gender and race prejudice.
The Firm also creates opportunities for women of color, LGBTQ+ women, and other intersectional groups to connect across practice groups and offices through formal and informal networking events and conferences.
