An attorney and former police officer, Jon Schorsch, maintains his active involvement with the Port of Seattle Police Department after he was medically reinstated following an accident at sea in 2017 which caused him to be blind. Jon Schorsch also volunteers in various community programs, such as Starbucks Corporation’s Diversity Mentoring Program.
Starbucks Corporation’s Diversity Mentoring Program is an annual program handled by the company’s Law and Corporate Affairs Department. It seeks to connect the company’s in-house lawyers with junior lawyers in private practice into a one-on-one mentorship relationship. Junior lawyers, who come from diverse backgrounds, will benefit from Starbucks Corporation’s experienced in-house lawyers who will share their insights about learning the practice of law, success in belonging to a law firm, and other facets of the private law practice environment.
The program is open to all private practitioners in Washington State who are in their first three years as an attorney. Additional requirements include membership in one or more minority bar associations. The Law and Corporate Affairs Department receives assistance from the King County Bar Association in identifying junior lawyers holding a Washington license who could benefit from the program.
