Wiley Among First Organizations to Join FCBA’s New Diversity Pipeline Program
Washington, DC – Wiley is one of the first organizations to have joined a new Diversity Pipeline Program announced today by the Federal Communications Bar Association (FCBA). The inaugural program includes 19 anchor employer participant organizations – including Wiley and nine other law firms. The Pipeline Program marks the first time the FCBA will directly facilitate internship placements for diverse law students, working with leading law firms, companies, and trade associations in the Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) sector.
Wiley has long played a prominent leadership role in the FCBA. The firm’s past FCBA Presidents include Ambassador David A. Gross, co-chair of Wiley’s preeminent Telecom, Media & Technology (TMT) Practice; Peter D. Shields, Managing Partner of the firm; Joshua S. Turner, partner in the TMT Practice; and Wiley Founding Partner and Chairman Emeritus Richard E. Wiley.
In June 2020, TMT partner Megan L. Brown was elected Co-Chair of the Board of Trustees for the FCBA Foundation and partner Anna M. Gomez was named Treasurer of the FCBA. Ms. Gomez, in addition to her leadership role at FCBA, is Chair of the Federal Communications Commission’s Advisory Committee on Diversity and Digital Empowerment. In addition, Kathleen A. Kirby, co-chair of Wiley’s TMT Practice, will continue to serve as a member of the FCBA Executive Committee.
Wiley’s group of more than 60 attorneys, public policy advisors, and engineers is the foremost TMT practice in the United States, providing premier legal advice and counsel for the full spectrum of legal, business, and regulatory matters affecting the telecommunications, media, and technology industries.
