Atlanta, GA – Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP is pleased to announce that the Lawyers of Color nonprofit has named Nina Gupta among its inaugural list of "Wonderful Women." The list recognizes dynamic women attorneys "who show promise in their careers and demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing diversity in the legal profession," according to the nonprofit.
Nina is a trusted advisor to governing boards, superintendents, college or university presidents, C-suite executives, and other leaders in the education industry. Clients turn to her for strategic guidance on how to bring the mission and vision of their institutions to life, including through developing policies and coordinating the full scope of their legal needs. Her clients include leaders at K-12 schools, independent colleges, and public universities, as well as vendors and educators, in Georgia and throughout the Southeast.
Nina’s drive to serve the education industry stems from her own upbringing. Her family moved to America when she was 4 years old, and public schools in Georgia and other states gave her the opportunity to write a new story for herself and her family. She has served the community in other ways as well, including as a board member for the Partnership Against Domestic Violence and as a pro bono attorney representing abused and neglected children.
Lawyers of Color celebrated Nina and the other honorees at a reception in Atlanta on July 19.
