Changing the narrative of Asian Pacific American lawyers by increasing diversity in the legal profession was the focus of an interactive webinar on May 27 in honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Despite making gains on all measures of success, Asian Pacific Americans are an underrepresented community in the legal profession. Judge Natasha DePrimo shared her experiences and discussed what perpetuates stereotypes and how to overcome them. The free webinar was co-sponsored by the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of South Florida and the T.J. Reddick Bar Association and was moderated by attorneys Alen Hsu and Chanae Wood. Weiss Serota Helfman Cole & Bierman, P.L. hosted the virtual event.
