We are pleased to announce that Norma Jackson, Thompson Coburn’s Chief Diversity and Attorney Development Officer, and Fatima Khan, Labor and Employment Partner, have been chosen to join the Saint Louis University (SLU) School of Law Community Council on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
SLU Law has a strong commitment to racial justice and equity, exemplified by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion established 15 years ago. Chaired by Dean William Johnson, the Council aims to advise SLU students, faculty, and staff on creating a diverse and inclusive environment. The Council will meet on a quarterly basis with the goal of advising SLU students, faculty, and staff on ensuring a diverse, equitable and inclusive law school community.
In addition to Norma's role on the Council, she has also been appointed to two community boards. Norma is serving on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis and the Friends of Kathy J. Weinman Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence. Norma's passion and experience will be instrumental in promoting a more diverse and inclusive community within these organizations.
Furthermore, Fatima Khan was also asked to join the Council because of her role as the president of the St. Louis South Asian Bar Association. Norma's leadership on the Council, along with Fatima's engagement, will undoubtedly contribute to shaping policies and initiatives that foster diversity, equity and inclusivity.
