Diversity Newsletter: Celebrating the Irish in New Orleans

On St. Patrick’s Day, we’d like to share our latest Affinity newsletter, “Holy Hibernia! Celebrating the Irish in New Orleans.” It is no surprise to anyone living in New Orleans that the Irish have a long and storied history in the Crescent City and Louisiana. Visitors often miss the clear signs and symbols of the Celts around our fair city. But they are there, and the Irish have been as integral to New Orleans as the French and Spanish, if mostly arriving a little later.

Check out our latest diversity newsletter to learn about a few examples of the importance of the Irish in New Orleans and the trails of their legacy.

MBLB’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee members include members Alan Brackett and Mike Parks along with associate JoAnn Hymel.

Among the initiatives the DE&I Committee has launched is the Affinity newsletter, which allows diverse voices and points of view to be shared, both within our firm and externally. The newsletter is intended to educate, particularly on historical diversity issues and their impact on or by the law. While these articles provide valuable perspective, they are not intended to espouse a position by the firm.

Let’s start a conversation!
