    • Careers

Diane Lucas, Pro Bono Counsel for Racial Justice Initiatives at Davis Polk, joins us to discuss how her role at a corporate law firm gives her the institutional support to combat systemic racism. She talks about why her career has always focused on criminal justice reform and how she was able to further her dreams while working at the Legal Aid Society, the NYS Attorney General's Office, and the Justice Collaborative. Diane also speaks about how a class early in law school has guided her through her career.  

Editor's Note: This conversation was recorded before Derek Chauvin was found guilty for the murder of George Floyd.
