Nov.14.2013 — The Washington Post
Crowell & Moring Chairman Kent Gardiner and Washington, D.C.-based partner Kirsten Nathanson and counsel Astor Heaven are interviewed by The Washington Post regarding the firm's Sponsorship initiative. The program, which is the first law firm initiative of its kind in the country, connects partners with young lawyers to fully develop their talents and enhance their careers. Gardiner told the Post, "If you enhance the diversity and perspectives and ways of thinking about a problem based on different life experiences, different approaches, you create more opportunity for innovation."
