For more than 20 years, the Bingham Fellows program has brought together experienced individuals from across the Louisville community to be a part of an advanced leadership program. This year, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is proud to announce that firm partner Christie A. Moore has been selected to join the Louisville Leadership Center’s Bingham Fellows Class of 2017 as they tackle the topic Winning the Talent of the Future.
Before the program kicks off, Christie was kind enough to give us some insight into her involvement in the Louisville community, and why she is excited about this prestigious opportunity.
In what ways are you currently involved in the Louisville community?
My passions include providing services for the underserved, both in the legal community and in women’s healthcare. I am currently on the Board of the Legal Aid Society of Louisville and the Board of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK). Through those two organizations, I hope to be a better citizen and ensure our community reflects the values of justice and compassion.
How do you feel about being selected to be a part of the Bingham Fellow Class of 2017?
I am really excited and humbled. The individuals chosen to be in this class come from all walks of life and industry and are really accomplished people in their own fields. The group is also a true reflection of the diversity we find in our community.
What are you most excited about regarding this year’s topic: Winning the Talent of the Future?
As a native Louisvillian, I sometimes take for granted how wonderful our city and its residents are. But, I am always curious about why people choose to make Louisville their home. I know that in order to become the type of city we hope to be, we need to attract and keep the best and brightest. That means making sure our own children choose Louisville and attracting others to come and make Louisville their hometown.
How do you feel this topic ties into your work in the community?
It is a direct link. We need to keep and attract employees that find Louisville to be a vibrant and compassionate place to live. A place where they and their families can thrive and succeed, regardless of their socio-economic status.
How has community service helped you grow?
I have a much broader view of what it means to succeed and what it means to be a productive citizen. John F. Kennedy said “of those to whom much is given, much is required.” While I grew up in a very modest home in South Louisville, in Okolona [Go Trojans!!] I have had so many opportunities to be the best version of myself. My dad worked 2 jobs until I was about 10 years old. My mom got her GED when I was a child, and decided to go to college while I was working on my BA. We graduated together!
They both worked so hard to make sure my three sisters and I could achieve more than they ever thought they could. In the end, all of us graduated from college and my oldest sister and I have advanced degrees. Clearly, much has been given, so I feel deeply that much is expected of me. I only hope I can meet the expectation.
Do you feel your participation in community service activities has impacted your work at BGD?
Absolutely. But more importantly, I believe BGD has positively impacted my participation in community service. BGD is strongly committed to community service. I couldn’t do all of the pro bono work or community service without the full support of my partners. I initially chose Greenebaum because of its commitment to pro bono services and have been thrilled that our commitment has only grown over the years.
