Chancery Lane Chats: Sharon Jones on why Black Lawyers Matter

In 1982 Sharon Jones graduated with honours from Harvard Law School and, yet, she felt she was met with the assumption of being an incompetent lawyer by virtue of not being a white man. Sharon became a highly successful federal prosecutor, in-house counsel to Fortune 500 Corporations and CEO of diversity consultancy, Jones Diversity. Deconstructing implicit bias, Montfort hears that Black Lawyers Matter and becoming an ally requires pushing for change.

Montfort Communications is proud to provide pro bono support to a range of initiatives that encourage diversity and inclusion including: 100BlackInterns, The 30% Club, The Taylor Bennett Foundation and the Gray’s Inn Mentoring Scheme.
