Karla Doe has been selected as one of 14 associates from among several law firms to participate in the 2023 U.S. Bank Spotlight on Talent program. The year-long cohort experience focuses on growing early-career diverse lawyers through professional and leadership development.
This year’s program kicked off with a virtual session in mid-February, followed by an in-person, all-day session in Minneapolis at U.S. Bank headquarters on March 21, with networking, leadership, and goal-setting activities with bank attorneys and its general counsel and chief diversity officer.
“As we kick off our seventh year of this program, we are more excited than ever to invest in the careers of an impressive group of attorneys through our reimagined, immersive Spotlight on Talent program,” said Jim Chosy, senior executive vice president and general counsel for U.S. Bank. “We’re committed to supporting the advancement of diverse attorneys not only within our own practice, but within our preferred law firms and the broader legal profession, and we’re excited to see how this unique cohort experience helps facilitate that for these lawyers.”
Throughout the year, the cohort will participate in monthly events, including leadership meetings, practice group roundtables, mentoring, and the opportunity to present a CLE to the U.S. Bank Law Division. Spotlight participants will also strengthen their knowledge of the U.S. Bank business and develop stronger relationships with Law Division professionals through attendance at regular meetings.
“I’m honored to represent my firm in the U.S. Bank Law Division Spotlight on Talent program and look forward to working with my cohort,” said Doe.
Doe is a senior associate in Alston & Bird’s Litigation & Trial Practice Group. She focuses her practice on a variety of commercial litigation services.
Cohort participants have three to five years of experience and practice in an area relevant to legal services applicable to U.S. Bank business.
The Spotlight on Talent program will conclude at the end of November.
