Audrey Chang, of counsel in the Houston office of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, will participate in “Show Up and Step Up,” a panel discussion focused on diversity and leadership development at the State Bar of Texas’s 2019 Bar Leaders Conference.
The two-day event will take place at The Westin Galleria in Houston, July 26-27, and is designed to bring together local bar association leaders to address association challenges and discuss new strategies and ideas through expert-led breakouts and panels.
As a featured panelist, Chang will speak on why having diverse leadership is vital in the retention, development, and advancement of the legal profession and bar work.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to take the lead in helping to foster diversity and inclusion in our profession,” Chang said. “I feel fortunate to work for a firm that values diversity and hope events such as this will encourage others to create opportunities that further diversity.”
Earlier this year, Chang was the recipient of the 2019 Champion of Diversity Award from the Asian Pacific Interest Section (APIS) of the State Bar of Texas. The Texas Diversity Council also awarded her with its DiversityFirst™ Award and she has been listed on the Hot List by Lawyers of Color LLC.
