This week on Law Light, we are continuing our series on Diversity and Inclusion with guest Veronica Foley, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary of Precision Drilling. Veronica speaks with Melinda Delmonico, President & CEO of Gibson Arnold about her legal career path, about moving to the United States at the age of 16, and about fighting to become a lawyer despite those who doubted her from a very young age. Veronica’s story is a fascinating one, and she beautifully delivers her thoughts on what diversity & inclusion mean in the workplace and why it is important in all aspects of the professional world. Veronica aims to lead by example when it comes to implementing diversity & inclusion, and she and Melinda discuss the challenges that are posed by unconscious biases against people of color and other underrepresented groups.
