Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd announced that Mary Caskey has been selected to participate in the Diversity Leaders Initiative (DLI), an award-winning program of Furman University’s Riley Institute now in its 17th year.
While DLI classes are typically sorted by state geographic region, the fall 2020 class is the first-ever statewide cohort. The intensive four-month program will be held virtually due to COVID-19, a pandemic that underscores the need for such a program, said Dr. Donald Gordon, executive director of the Riley Institute.
DLI class members are selected through a rigorous application and interview process after being nominated by existing Riley Fellows. Participants are accepted based on their capacity to create impact within their organizations and communities. Graduates of DLI become Riley Fellows, members of a cross-sector of South Carolinians that includes corporate CEOs, legislators, superintendents, religious and nonprofit heads, and business and community leaders.
A leader at Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, Mary serves on the firm’s four-member Management Committee and chairs the firm’s Recovery practice group. Mary is a Certified Bankruptcy and Debtor-Creditor Law Specialist and an experienced litigator who concentrates her practice in resolving creditor and consumer disputes and real estate litigation.
