Miller Johnson Names Hildreth a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Pathfinder

Miller Johnson is pleased to announce it has selected Alise S. Hildreth for membership in the 2022 class of Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Pathfinders—a seven-month professional program designed to train high-performing, early-career attorneys on foundational leadership and relationship-building. The program provides participants with the opportunity to learn from top leaders in the legal profession along with experts in the fields of learning and development and executive coaching.

“Alise is a shining example of a future leader, who has shown a real commitment to our organization’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts,” said Amy E. Murphy and Kevin D. Battle, co-chairs of Miller Johnson’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. “We look forward to her continued growth in this crucial area.”

Ms. Hildreth is an Associate at Miller Johnson in the firm’s litigation section. She represents corporate and individual clients in matters involving commercial litigation, data privacy and cybersecurity, real estate, education, private client, and family law. Ms. Hildreth has experience advising clients on compliance with many privacy and cybersecurity laws governing private and government organizations, including state privacy and data breach notification laws, HIPAA, CAN-SPAM, FCRA, Critical Infrastructure Protection Act (CIPA), ITAR/EAR, and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Designed to supplement training initiatives at LCLD Member corporations and law firms, the Pathfinder Program provides participants with practical tools for developing and leveraging internal professional networks, foundational leadership skills, and an understanding of career development strategies. Each Pathfinder is matched with a Program Facilitator to serve as a mentor in helping one connect what they learn in the program to the organization at which they work.

LCLD President Robert J. Grey added, “The LCLD Pathfinder Program exposes participants to intensive training, experiential learning, and opportunities to network with peers and esteemed LCLD Fellows and Alumni in small group gatherings. It’s a program that can truly enhance one’s career.”

From class meetings to group peer circles, this year’s 433 Pathfinders will have several opportunities to interact and network with their peers, both in person and in a virtual format. This is in addition to the exclusive leadership and professional-development curriculum that has always distinguished the LCLD Pathfinder Program.

Pathfinders are selected by leaders at LCLD member corporations and law firms. They have been identified as diverse, early-career emerging leaders who have distinguished—or have the potential to distinguish—themselves within their organizations.
