Claude is a champion for, and on the steering committee of, Reed Smith’s Multicultural Network (MCN). The MCN’s objective is to provide all Reed Smith employees, and certain external clients, with the opportunity to experience and celebrate their differences and raise awareness of issues that are pertinent to ethnic minority legal professionals. Claude also mentors a number of Reed Smith’s ethnic minority junior lawyers, trainees and paralegals, as well as ethnic minority students and aspiring lawyers outside of Reed Smith. On top of this, he organises and sponsors a number of work experience and mini internships for ethnic minority students. He actively supports and speaks at courses organised by the BLD Foundation (who support young people from ethnic minority and/or socio-economical underprivileged backgrounds towards achieving their goals), and Aspiring Solicitors (whose primary aim is to increase diversity in the legal profession). Claude also assists with the job and study applications, and supplies references for internal and external ethnic minority people interested in a career in law.
