In this capacity, he oversees all aspects of the firm’s efforts to recruit, hire, develop and promote diverse and women lawyers. He is also responsible for the development and implementation of diversity and inclusion policies for all of the firm’s US offices.

An active proponent of diversity in the legal profession for more than 18 years, prior to joining Mayer Brown in 2013, Jerry served as the director of diversity and inclusion for almost seven years at a major New York City-based law firm and is the former president of the National Attorney of Color Network, an organization that serves as a resource for legal employers seeking to establish a diverse workforce.

In 2016, Jerry received the Diversity Leader Award from Profiles in Diversity Journal, a national publication that recognizes diversity officers who are advancing the evolution of diversity and inclusion.
