I recently sat down with Laura Maechtlen on The Resilient Lawyer podcast to chat about her career at Seyfarth Shaw, her work with the LGBT community, and what a more diverse and inclusive workplace truly looks like.

Laura is the co-chair of the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion initiatives and Vice Chair of the firm’s Labor and Employment Department. She leads a number of boards and bar organizations that aim to promote diversity in the legal profession.
