Bailey & Glasser, LLP would like to congratulate attorney Panida Anderson on being named a 2023 Leadership Council for Legal Diversity (LCLD) Pathfinder. Ms. Anderson practices consumer protection, class action, and employment litigation with a particular focus on representing consumers in class actions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). She is also the immediate past President of the National Thai American Bar Association (TABA), which facilitates the professional development of its members and increases access to legal services for the greater Thai community.
LCLD is an organization made up of more than 400 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners, who have pledged themselves to create a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. LCLD’s programs are designed to “attract, inspire, and nurture” talent and promote inclusiveness within these organizations and in the participants’ circles of influence, thereby creating a new and more diverse generation of attorneys.
The Pathfinder Program is designed for diverse, high-potential, early-career attorneys at LCLD Member organizations. As a Pathfinder, Ms. Anderson will gain practical tools for developing and leveraging internal professional networks, leadership skills, and career development strategies specific to law firm practice.
“The LCLD program encourages Pathfinders to embrace our diversity and show up as our full selves.” Ms. Anderson said. “It teaches communication skills so that we can be better advocates and team players. Being able to network and become friends with like-minded diverse professionals is invaluable, and I appreciate Bailey Glasser for nominating me to be this year’s Pathfinder.”
After completing the seven-month program, Ms. Anderson will join fellow Bailey Glasser attorneys Jade Smith-Williams and Britney Littles as LCLD Alumni Program members.
Bailey Glasser became an LCLD member firm in 2022, with founding partner Benjamin Bailey as LCLD “Leader at the Front” and partner Cary Joshi as 2022 LCLD Fellow.
