Introducing the 2023 AFS Fellows: Building Leadership Across ArentFox Schiff
As part of the program, the Fellows attend leadership retreats, participate in seminars, identify key issues at the firm, and help develop strategies for addressing those challenges. Established in 2017, the Fellows program includes attorneys with diverse perspectives who are committed to making a difference.
The selection committee includes Cristina A. Carvalho, Joseph J. Krasovec, Christine A. McGuinness, Aram Ordubegian, Eva J. Pulliam, and M. Scott Peeler, who founded and leads the AFS Fellows Program. The committee is supported by Colleen O’Hara and Jessica Salvaterra Grondine.
"We are once again excited to congratulate and welcome an absolutely stellar new class of AFS Fellows. Since 2017, we’ve selected 70 individuals to be a part of this program that focuses on ‘leading from where you are’ and making a positive difference. I can’t wait to work with such an incredibly talented class."
– M. Scott Peeler, Co-Chair, Associate Development Committee and Leader, AFS Fellows Program
Year One: During a weekend retreat Fellows will learn key concepts of effective leadership and gain insights into personal leadership styles through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Skillscope 360-degree assessment.
Year Two: Current and former firm leaders will give the Fellows a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to lead a major law firm, strategies for overcoming challenges, and the importance of protecting a culture of inclusion and empowerment.
Year Three: Fellows will identify a meaningful issue at AFS and suggest a strategy to improve it. They will spend the final year of the program implementing a strategy and reporting on their progress.
