FLOC Flashes

Updated: Feb 23, 2021

The FLOC Board had our retreat last month and was able to connect on a deeper level through the creative icebreakers we engaged in. It solidified the mission and the intent of our organization, which is family, keeping our culture alive, and providing mentorship and visibility to our community. In that vein, we would like to remind our members to please reach out to FilAm law students who are interested in obtaining a scholarship and being a liaison to their respective schools and FLOC.

Congratulations on a very successful presentation of Overcoming Barriers Part I. We had one of the biggest turnouts of a FLOC sponsored event. Guest speakers, Laurie Rose Lubiano (IP and Product Counsel at The Climate Corporation in San Francisco), Eric C. de los Santos (Associate General Counsel, Labor and Employment at Facebook), and Christina Zabat-Fran (Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at St. John Knits) provided us with important insight on how they were able to successfully maneuver themselves in high ranking positions in big name companies. President – Elect Elsie Secoquian did an amazing job of moderating and keeping the momentum going as each speaker took turns discussing their experiences in as in-house counsel.

Thank you to our generous sponsors FALSD, OCHBA, OCKABA, OCLBA, NAPABA, NFALA, PABA, and TABA!
