MI Mentor Series - Maggie Baingana

Thursday 18 March 2021

Maggie Baingana continues our series on 18th March at 2.30 pm GMT

We’re delighted to announce our first African mentor - Maggie is co-founder and Managing Partner for Shield Associates, our member in Kigali-Rwanda, a country which is blossoming after much pain and hardship.

Maggie’s personal and professional growth and her international aspirations reflect that growth and search for opportunities, so we have much to learn from her legal journey.

Maggie actually has several years of experience working for both Government and International Organizations in the Justice, Health and Higher Educations sectors. She spent over ten years managing US government multi-million-dollar grants for technical assistance to Rwanda's higher education and continues to hold a Senior Advisory role for Tulane University Rwanda, where she advises on faculty development and e-learning.

She currently serves as the Executive Secretary for Rwanda Women Lawyers Association and is a member of the Rwanda Leader's Fellowship. An experienced and dynamic mentor, particularly to young women professionals (who she helps maximize their potential to live a balanced life while making tangible contributions to their communities), we have a lot to learn from her.

MI Mentor Series - Greg Hahn

Thursday 29 April 2021

Join us on 29th April at 2.30 pm UK GMT for the next in our series with Greg Hahn.

From humble beginnings and more than a flirtation with Division 1 Football, Greg has forged his own way through life to ‘make the grades’, get into law school (the NFL was never really an option and he was smart enough to realise that!) and build from there to become one of the Best Lawyers in his field.

With both international and governmental experience under his belt (Greg was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to the SALT Treaty Committee for negotiations between Egypt and Israel and was also aide to Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Warren Burger), he is also one of only three Indiana attorneys to be members of the International Masters of Gaming Law, an organization of pre-eminent gaming attorneys from around the world.

He currently serves as general counsel for the Marion County Democratic Central Committee. Greg has extensive experience in serving on selection committees in hiring minority companies for projects, as well as in setting up women-owned and minority-owned businesses (MBE/WBEs) – and he has seen and mentored many a wave of young lawyers in his time – so this will be a session worth tuning in for. * Zoom details to follow*
