Hausfeld announces Erika A. Inwald and Farhad Mirzadeh are 2024 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Pathfinders

Hausfeld is pleased to announce that Erika A. Inwald and Farhad Mirzadeh have been named a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Pathfinder for 2024. A multifaceted program produced by LCLD, the Pathfinder program provides participants with the opportunity to learn from top leaders in the legal profession as well as career development experts. Over the course of seven months, the program is designed to train high-performing attorneys who are early in their careers on foundational leadership and relationship-building skills.

The Pathfinder program, conceived as a supplement to training initiatives already in place at LCLD Member corporations and law firms, provides participants with practical tools for developing and leveraging internal professional networks, leadership skills and an understanding of career development strategies. In addition to full class programming, each participant is placed in a small group that is led by a Program Facilitator who serves as a mentor to help the Pathfinder connect what they learn in the program to the organization at which they work.

In addition to the exclusive leadership and professional-development curriculum that is unique to the Pathfinder program, this year’s LCLD Pathfinders will have several opportunities—from class meetings to group peer circles—to meet and interact with their peers, both in person and in a virtual format.

Selected by leaders at LCLD Member corporations and law firms, Pathfinders have been identified as diverse, early-career emerging leaders who have distinguished—or have the potential to distinguish—themselves within their organizations.
