C-Suite Leadership Institute

The C-Suite Leadership Institute (“CLI”) is an effort by senior leaders in the legal community to effectively change the diversity landscape for C-Suite general counsel at Fortune 500 companies. CLI provides a platform for senior leaders to identify, develop, and promote talented attorneys of color. The program, led by influential leaders, is structured with panels, workshops, and individual meetings that provide learning, networking and visibility opportunities for participants.

CLI panels will feature insights from Fortune 500 GCs, top-tier leadership development consultants and executive search professionals. CLI program topics include personal leadership development and assessment; executive presence; inclusive communications; corporate governance / ESG; and crisis management. While the program is virtual, there will be ample time for structured group sessions and networking to promote peer to peer and leader connectivity.


  • Attorney of color: specifically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups – African American/Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Hispanic/Latinx.
  • Average tenure of experience 15-20 years.
  • Direct report to Chief Legal Officer/General Counsel or within 2 reporting levels to Chief Legal Officer/General Counsel.
