PHILADELPHIA — In commemoration of Black History Month, Stradley Ronon hosted an event celebrating Black excellence on February 20 in the firm’s Philadelphia office. Led by Stradley Ronon associate Terence Jones and legal talent coordinator Alivia Walton, co-chairs of the firm’s Black and African American Engagement Group, the reception brought together Black lawyers and professional staff along with students from Philadelphia-area law schools to network and build connections within the next generation of Black professionals.

The event featured a sit-down conversation with Terence and partner Danielle Banks. Over the course of the conversation, Danielle shared stories of notable successes in her career, identified mentors who helped to make those successes possible, and explained how she overcame doubt as a young professional.

Stradley Ronon plans to close out Black History Month with a lunch presentation focused on the cultural and historical significance of the Harlem Renaissance and its impact on Philadelphia Black culture. The event, set for March 6, will feature Villanova University professor Crystal Lucky.

Formed in 2022, Stradley Ronon’s Black and African American Engagement Group is one of five engagement groups that bring together lawyers and professional staff from across the firm with similar backgrounds to share experiences, promote cultural awareness and provide opportunities for personal and professional development.
