PITTSBURGH – Steptoe & Johnson PLLC is pleased to announce that Endia Vereen, Member, has been selected as a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow for 2024. The LCLD Fellows program connects high-potential attorneys from diverse backgrounds, providing them with a year-long professional development program focused on leadership and relationship building.
During her year as a Fellow, Endia will participate in national and regional meetings, be involved in learning experiences and leadership lunches, and will be teamed up with a small group of accountability partners. Fellows will have the opportunity to interact with key legal and business leaders of large U.S. corporations and connect with Managing Partners and General Counsels of other LCLD member organizations in small group settings.
“I am honored to have been selected and excited to serve the firm in this capacity,” Vereen said. “As a first-year law student I was part of the LCLD Law School Mentoring program, so this really feels like a full-circle moment.”
Vereen said she is looking forward to connecting with like-minded practitioners who are genuinely invested in meaningful professional development and building long-lasting professional relationships.
Vereen practices in Steptoe & Johnson’s Pittsburgh office where she handles business transactions and focuses on mergers and acquisitions. Vereen’s clients range in all sizes of businesses and represent the healthcare, technology, manufacturing, and financial technology industries.
Fellows are selected by the General Counsel and Managing Partners at LCLD member law firms throughout the United States. In order to be selected as a Fellow, an attorney must have eight to fifteen years of professional legal experience, have a strong history of performance, and be identified as being on a trajectory toward leadership positions within their firm. Steptoe & Johnson attorneys Monté Williams, Joseph Leonoro, and Brooke Kamicker are past LCLD Fellows.
Founded in 2009, LCLD’s mission is to empower the next generation of diverse leaders in the legal profession with the ultimate goal of building a more equitable and diverse legal profession. Its Fellowship program launched in 2011 to support the leadership potential of underrepresented backgrounds and boasts an alumni network of more than 5,000 attorneys.
