Kim Koopersmith
Akin Gump

“I want to make sure I use my voice and experience as a lawyer, working mother and firm leader to address and advocate for diversity and flexibility. I truly believe that our success originates from our talent, and one of the best ways we can support our employees is to provide the flexibility that they require. Equally as important, flexibility allows us to be in sync with our clients who also value diversity and flexibility.
