Taft Partner and Chief Diversity Officer Adrian D. Thompson served on the planning committee for the CMBA 2016 Diversity & Inclusion Conference, which will be held on May 20. The half-day event will headline the nationally-acclaimed speaker Verna Myers, who rose out of Baltimore’s working class to become a Harvard-trained lawyer, entrepreneur, author and cultural innovator. Her dynamic, laugh-out-loud speeches inspire audiences to go further — to move beyond leveling the playing field to creating a new field altogether — and empower people of all backgrounds to contribute at their highest levels.
