I knew that this would be a great
opportunity to learn from other
leaders in our community.

"Consistently my mentors referenced their mentors. A name that frequently came up was John Payton," Aiken says. Payton was a partner at
WilmerHale for more than 20 years, joining the firm in 1978.
"Unfortunately, he passed away before I started working at WilmerHale.
But when I got to the firm, it was clear that his history and legacy were
not only memorialized at the firm, but they were still felt in the way that
we do our business and in the way that we conduct our pro bono practices. So, when I heard about the John Payton Leadership Academy,
I knew that this would be a great opportunity to learn from other leaders
in our community," Aiken says. Another WilmerHale attorney, Jeremy
Moorehouse, is attending this year's academy.

"We recruit top talent and it's so important for us to continue their professional development so that we can develop leaders within the profession," says Monya Bunch, professional development and diversity
manager at WilmerHale.

I find providing empowerment
very rewarding. But I want
to transfer this sense of
empowerment in a way to lift
up my team members and
colleagues.

Bunch also believes in pro bono advocacy, a cornerstone of the
Leadership Academy. In fact, all attendees will participate in the D.C. Bar
Pro Bono Center's Advice & Referral Clinics. "We want to develop attorneys who recognize the importance of giving back, being active in local
bars and pro bono activities," Bunch says. "John Payton was such an
integral part of our firm. The fact that the academy was renamed in his
honor, it just has that much more meaning for us because we know how
he encouraged and developed our attorneys."
