Taylor Porter continued its professionalism seminar series today with students at downtown Baton Rouge’s Mentorship STEAM Academy as attorneys John Parker and Lauren Rivera presented, "How to Be Professional in the Workplace.”
Parker and Rivera addressed some of the important characteristics young workers should display in the workplace, including being on time, dressing professionally, treating others with respect, and always working with a positive attitude, among others.
Today’s seminar was the third of five seminars to be presented by Taylor Porter attorneys to students at Mentorship STEAM Academy.
“Confidentiality” by Adam Thames and Juan Miranda will be presented on Jan. 23; and “Workplace Diversity” on Jan. 26 by Vicki Crochet and Katia Bowman. Taylor Porter attorneys Scott Mansfield and Leslie Daniel presented, “Professional Attire: Dress for Success,” on Nov. 10, followed by attorney Ryan French's presentation on "How to Become an Attorney," on Nov. 30.
Mentorship STEAM Academy is an early college high school for students who may have been or are being underserved in previous/current educational experiences. The high school program aims to prepare all students to undertake a four-year college or university career pathway and delivered through integrated, project-based approaches. Like traditional schools, full-time teaching staff teach students, but these teachers receive support from industry and university representatives both in and outside of the classroom. These interactions help to provide younger students with an informed career focus.
Taylor Porter attorneys are dedicated to enriching the community in which our attorneys, staff, families, and clients live and work, and this commitment to giving back in the community is generated by volunteering at various activities through schools, nonprofits and community events, and serving on the boards of directors of nonprofit organizations or making contributions to worthwhile causes.
