Dear Friends of The Center For Legal Inclusiveness,
We are sad to announce that Karen Hester is leaving Center For Legal Inclusiveness (CLI) on September 6th after serving our community for the past 6 years.
While we will miss Karen’s leadership, we are happy for her because she is leaving to pursue a new opportunity with Lockheed Martin.
The Board of Directors applauds all that Karen has brought to the organization and the vast accomplishments she leaves behind. We, along with CLI’s COO Abe Kaul, are committed to a seamless transition plan that will include a diligent search for her successor. The Board will select an interim executive director during this transition period.
As leaders of the Board, we know that transitions can be difficult but we are committed to making sure CLI continues to meet the ever-evolving needs of the community and our mission of creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession.
J. Ryann Peyton
