Wargo French co-hosted a successful CLE with the National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) on May 1, 2019 in our Los Angeles office titled “A Script for Success: Promoting Workplace Diversity and Inclusion.” Our panelists were fantastic and engaged the audience in a candid discussion about diversity in the workplace, offering insights into best practices for creating an inclusive environment.
Wargo French is a proud participant of the 8th Annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy, which raises money for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Last year, the Atlanta Community Food Bank distributed over 61 million meals across its 29 county service area, where 1 in 5 children and 1 in 7 adults live in food insecure households. Each $1 we raise helps provide enough food for 4 meals.
