PHOENIX (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Greenberg Traurig labor and employment attorney Mona Stone presented during an Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession (IILP) symposium, “Ethnic Diversity in the Legal Profession,” Monday, June 22, 2015 in Charlotte, N.C.
Stone’s popular presentation, “Self-Identity: Report from an Indian-American Working in India” focuses on her experiences during a client assignment that took her to India from 2012 to 2013. Born in India, Stone and her family immigrated to the U.S. when she was a toddler.
“I jumped at the chance to work on an extended project in India when it arose,” said Stone. “Overall, I found the project to be one of the best assignments of my professional career. I learned a lot about the client, gained insight into Indian business and legal practices, and appreciated how my Indian ancestry helped me establish critical relationships and friends with business people and Indian lawyers.”
She based her presentation on an article she wrote for the 2014 IILP Review. In the article, she outlined the business and legal culture in India and traditional and emerging roles of women in business in the country. Both business people and attorneys attended the IILP symposium, which was held at the Bank of America Auditorium in Charlotte.
