PYP is a virtual D&I skills training and mentorship platform that matches diverse attorneys -- women, minority, the disabled & LGBQT+, from law firms to decision-making in-house counsel at global brands. The October series launches with a Covid19 driven RFP scenario and then culminates in a live, one-hour pitch before two (2) assigned “buyer” panels of general and senior in-house counsels. The scenario touches across M&A, litigation, commercial real estate, and IP law matters.
