We are proud to introduce the rest of our esteemed panelists –

Tiffany Wong will co-lead PANEL II – Personal Branding: How to Balance Being Yourself with Meeting their Expectations.  Tiffany is an Account Executive at Allison + Partners, a global PR agency. A skilled communications professional, Tiffany has worked with numerous companies across the consumer, nonprofit, tech and healthcare industries in support of client media relations programs and brand work. She has landed her clients in a number of lifestyle, tech and business publications and has supported countless launch campaigns throughout her time at the agency.

In step with her passion for uplifting diverse voices within the communications field, Tiffany previously served as a professional development panelist for The LAGRANT Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to increase the number of ethnic minorities in the advertising, marketing and public relations fields.

Christine L.

Christine helps build and strengthen relationships that enable the firm to attract, retain and promote a diverse workforce.

PANEL IV – Seeing Through the OCI Sales Pitch: The Human Resources Perspective will be co-lead by Tiffany McQueen, Senior Attorney Recruiting Coordinator at Kirkland & Ellis LLP (Los Angeles, CA).  Tiffany climbed the corporate ladder and discovered her passion for helping others succeed.  Overcoming fear and imposter syndrome, Tiffany had to learn how to carve out a new and exciting path for herself and has managed to maintain previous relationships, while fostering new ones.

Over time, Tiffany took strides at focusing more on the world of recruiting by getting more involved in the legal community.  She is now one of four West/Rocky Mountain Regional Representatives for the National Association of Law Placement (NALP), she recently became the Chair of the Los Angeles Area Legal Recruitment Association’s (LAALRA) Public Relations Committee and also serves as a member of LAALRA’s Diversity Committee.  Taking this career leap made way for her to hone her skills as a legal recruiter. 

Rachel Kronick Rothbart will co-lead PANEL IV.  Rachel is the Director of Career Services at the University of California Gould School of Law.  She is responsible for counseling students, administering the office’s educational programming, and she is USC Gould’s public sector careers specialist. Rachel received her JD from University of Miami School of Law and is admitted to the state bars of Florida and California.

Rachel is no stranger to empowering womxn. Having served as an attorney and director of Legal Services at the Harriet Buhai Center for Family Law in Los Angeles, Rachel supervised volunteers and staff, revised the center’s handbook on domestic violence, and gave presentations and conducted trainings, worked with public interest groups, and participated in the planning of local and statewide legal trainings.  In addition, Rachel served on the executive committee for the Family Law Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association. Although a military brat during the early part of her life, she calls Charleston, South Carolina, her hometown because of her family’s strong roots to the community.
