Working remotely creates challenges to the creativity, cohesiveness and culture of any professional firm. How do you get to know each other and foster community when you’re stuck on video calls all day and you’ve lost the spontaneity of seeing people in the office?

Scott and junior associates Nickta Hoss and Lucy Stanley to discuss the book club they founded and how they picked their summer reading list – Martín & Meditations on the South Valley by Jimmy Santiago Baca, The Bomber Mafia by Malcolm Gladwell, Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu, and Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro – and the surprising and candid conversations these books sparked about inclusivity, empathy, mentoring, and overcoming imposter syndrome.
