Taking on a newly created role, Kori Carew recently joined the international law firm Seyfarth Shaw as its first chief inclusion & diversity officer, according to a Seyfarth news release.

Touting Carew, an attorney, as a “sought-after authority” on inclusion and diversity, the Am Law 100 firm pointed to Carew’s seven years of experience as director of strategic diversity Initiatives at Shook, Hardy & Bacon, where she successfully helped lead the large firm’s charge for diversity and inclusion before joining Seyfarth.
