New Jersey Law Journal: 'A Range of Voices' Is What Spurs Innovation, Shirley Emehelu Says
Shirley U. Emehelu, a Member with CSG's Litigation Group and Chair of the firm's Diversity & Inclusion Committee, was recently honored with the New Jersey Law Journal’s 2021 Innovators award for her outstanding external and internal leadership in diversity, equity and inclusion. She has undoubtedly brought an innovative approach to the role – not only by reinvigorating the firm’s commitment to the recruitment, development and retention of minority attorneys and professional staff, but as a central figure in preserving CSG’s longstanding culture of collegiality, unity and excellence in service to our clients, to each other and to our surrounding community over the course of the remote work experience.
Following the award, she spoke with the New Jersey Law Journal in a Q&A sharing a look at her proudest moments of 2020, the critical nature of diversity when driving innovative results and the approach she and the Committee have taken towards organizational changemaking.
