Ropes & Gray Hosts Third West Coast Diversity Roundtable
IP litigation partners Leslie Spencer, co-chair of Ropes & Gray’s diversity committee, and Jim Batchelder (both of Silicon Valley) hosted the firm’s third diversity roundtable on April 18 for in-house counsel from leading Bay Area companies. The roundtable featured a “mini-hackathon,” in which participants brainstormed ideas and action plans for fostering inclusiveness. The evening also included a presentation by Talmetrix, a minority-run technology company that helps organizations capture and analyze data on employee engagement and inclusive culture.
Partners Raj Marphatia, David Chun, Gaby Higgins and Andrew Thomases (all of Silicon Valley), and associate Henry Huang (Silicon Valley) also participated.
