Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA), the world’s leading legal search firm, has launched a new podcast today, B.S.: Beyond Stereotypes. Through in-depth conversations with highly successful lawyers and legal professionals, Merle Vaughn, National Law Firm Diversity Practice Leader and Partner Recruiter, explores their unique, inspiring and often unbelievable personal and professional stories and experiences. Whether it’s someone with an unusual side gig or a passion for something out of the ordinary, Merle encourages them to share their authenticity with the world.

The first episode features Derrick Boston, Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel of Virgin Orbit, LLC, who shares how, as a highly successful black lawyer and leader, he has transcended stereotypes and manages to make space for D&I in a business that is literally out of this world.

“I wanted to create this podcast because I believe that through courage, authenticity and storytelling, we can provide exposure to differences that will encourage the legal profession to get beyond the stereotypes and biases that are perpetuated every day,” said Merle Vaughn. “I am hopeful that in addition to enjoying the B.S. conversations, at least one listener will be inspired to go out and effect change personally, professionally or both.”

Fans of the podcast can listen in on the last Thursday of every month. If you would like to provide feedback, suggest topics or be considered as a guest, email Hazel Hughes at hhughes@mlaglobal.com.
