For the fifth consecutive year, Peckar & Abramson’s Miami office has served as Supporting Sponsor of the Kozyak Minority Mentoring Picnic (MMP). Described as “the Ultimate Networking event for Minority Law Students, Lawyers and Judges,” this annual event was held on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Zoo Miami with more than 300 people in attendance. Lawyers and staff from P&A attended the MMP to meet minority students and identify mentorship opportunities, following an open invitation to all employees.
“It is our responsibility to bring more diversity into the legal profession by acting as mentors and providing access and opportunities to minority law students,” said Miami Partner Melinda “Mindy” S. Gentile, P&A’s National Diversity Chair and Executive Committee Liaison. “Strong diversity efforts impact businesses in a powerful way, and as a result, those who incorporate meaningful diversity incentives and inclusion initiatives as part of their regular business practices benefit greatly.”
