Shutts & Bowen LLP is pleased to announce that Erik R. Matheney, Victoria San Pedro Madani and Cameron A. Parks have been selected to represent the firm in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD)’s 2022 programs.
Tampa partner Erik R. Matheney has been named a member of the 2022 Class of Fellows. Launched in 2011, the Fellows program is an intensive, yearlong professional development program that mentors the legal industry’s diverse leaders of tomorrow. Designed for lawyers with eight to 15 years of experience, the program connects high-potential attorneys with leading general counsel and managing partners, and their peers for mentoring and career guidance. Erik is one of 426 Fellows named to the 2022 class, who will participate in virtual and in-person class meetings, with opportunities to interact with key legal and business leaders of large U.S. corporations, and leadership lunches hosted by LCLD Member organizations featuring a managing partner or general counsel.
Miami partner Victoria San Pedro Madani and Orlando partner Cameron Parks have been named members of the 2022 Class of Pathfinders. The Pathfinders Program is a seven-month professional program designed to train high-performing, early-career attorneys on foundational leadership and relationship-building. The program provides participants with the opportunity to learn from top leaders in the legal profession along with experts in the fields of learning and development and executive coaching. From class meetings to group peer circles, this year’s 433 Pathfinders will have several opportunities to interact and network with their peers, both in person and in a virtual format.
“We are delighted to welcome Erik, Victoria and Cameron as the firm’s newest class of LCLD participants,” said Aliette DelPozo Rodz, an LCLD Fellows Alumni and Chair of the firm’s Diversity Committee. “Each of them has shown tremendous leadership potential both within and outside of the firm and we are confident that participation in LCLD will allow their skills to grow and enhance their commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion.”
Past Shutts LCLD program participants also include Meredith Freeman (2019 Fellow), Manuel Negron (2020 Fellow), Jamie Wasserman (2021 Fellow) and Martha Ferral (2021 Pathfinder).
