Jackson, a member in Clark Hill Strasburger’s Dallas office, has been diversity committee chair at the firm since 2015 and leads the franchise & distribution team. As diversity chair, Jackson oversees three core programs serving as cornerstones of the firm’s diversity efforts: Clark Hill THRIVE, emphasizing multiculturalism (she’s a committee co-chair); ClarkHill BOLD, preparing/promoting women for leadership; and ClarkHill PRIDE, supporting LGBTQ lawyers/staff.
Jackson joined then-Strasburger & Price in 1998 after law school and over 20 years became one of the major forces behind the firm’s diversity initiatives. In 2018, when Strasburger combined with Clark Hill, Jackson saw the opportunity to expand diversity programs coast to coast and bring novel initiatives across a much larger platform with a firm sharing the same core values/culture. Thanks to Jackson’s efforts, CHS is now among the first-ever Dallas firms to participate in the nationwide Diverse Attorney Pipeline Program (DAPP), starting out with one law student in 2018 and increasing it to two in 2019. In February of this year, the firm also renewed its commitment in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s (LCLD) signature professional leadership development programs, selecting two of the firm’s attorneys—one from Pittsburgh, one from Los Angeles. The firm doubled its participation in LCLD’s 1L Scholar Program by selecting two students to clerk this summer.
