Staying Authentic + Being Successful

OSBA Leadership Academy

Global business attorney Vinita Bahri-Mehra presented this program to the Ohio State Bar Association’s "Leadership Academy" on Friday, January 22. She discussed the improving diversity statistics in central Ohio law firms, as well as her own experience as an Indian-born lawyer.

Vinita also laid out a four-part path to success for new lawyers, including (1) being true to one’s heritage, (2) creating a personal brand without compromising one’s cultural authenticity, (3) earning leadership roles in community and trade groups, and (4) balancing motivation with patience.
