How Attorneys Are Celebrating Pride Month in 2024

Partner Dianne Phillips was interviewed by Law360 about how attorneys are celebrating Pride Month in 2024. She discussed the various events and initiatives organized by Holland & Knight's LGBTQ Affinity Group, which she co-chaired for 20 years before passing the leadership to a new generation. Ms. Phillips highlighted the firm's Pride Month activities, including conversations with prominent figures, continuing legal education events and office-specific celebrations. She also shared her personal reflections on the progress made by the LGBTQ+ community and the importance of ongoing conversations about achievements and challenges. 

"I'm not tired of doing the work, but ... for young queer lawyers, I'm like the grandmother of the group," she said. "My lived experience is just different. ... [The new co-chairs] planned all this year's activities, and I'm really having fun watching them grow."
