Swift Currie Hosts State Bar High School Diversity Pipeline Program
Swift Currie joined the State Bar of Georgia Diversity Program, the Leadership Institute for Women of Color Attorneys (LIWOCA), John Marshall Law School and other Steering Committee members firms to hold the annual High School Pipeline Program. This year, the firm hosted 16 minority students on June 19, 2019, for an educational luncheon.
To kick off the program, managing partner Terry Brantley welcomed the students and partners Mike Rosetti and Erica Morton, along with attorneys Kelly Chartash, Raqketa Williams and Thea Nanton-Persaud, assisted with an interactive ice breaker and role play. Morton, partner Martine Cumbermack and attorney Donovan Potter then led a discussion on social media best practices in regard to employment opportunities and college acceptances.
The pipeline is designed to gather and introduce a group of ninth, 10th and 11th graders who are interested in law and provide them with opportunities to learn about the legal industry, interact with lawyers and judges, hone writing and oral presentation skills and network with their peers. The program culminates in an oral and writing competition and closing party.
Swift Currie, an active member of the State Bar of Georgia Diversity Program, is honored to support the High School Pipeline Program for the 10th year.
