Amber Haggins Joins Prophet as Global Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
April 5, 2021
NEW YORK, NY – Prophet announced today that Amber Haggins has joined the global consultancy as Global Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). She will help the firm drive forward its DEI efforts to continue to create a more inclusive and impactful experience for Prophet employees and clients.
Amber steps into this newly created role with extensive experience in DEI. She comes to Prophet from Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, a global law firm, where she served as Director of Diversity & Inclusion, responsible for embedding diversity, inclusion and cultural competency into both the firm’s day-to-day operations and long-tail strategic goals. Before Katten, she worked across government and aerospace industries to lead the strategy and execution of DEI initiatives. Early in her career, she served as a practicing attorney in Washington D.C., where she specialized in Commercial Litigation, Products Liability, Labor & Employment Litigation and Counseling.
“It is such an honor to join Prophet and a leadership team determined and committed to progress in diversity, equity, and inclusion,” Amber said. “We will continue to approach our DEI journey with humility, transparency and accountability to make a meaningful impact. I look forward to partnering with Propheteers to make a real difference at Prophet, in our communities and for our clients.”
This new leadership role emerged out of Prophet’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion made last summer. The search for a strong leader, who would fit Prophet’s needs and ambitions, was highly thorough and intentional.
“We are beyond excited to be able to work with Amber, our Prophet DEI council and the rest of the firm community to continue to drive our DEI agenda forward,” said Chiaki Nishino, President at Prophet and executive sponsor of the firm’s DEI efforts. “Her experience and expertise are exactly what we were looking for in this essential leadership role. We look forward to learning and growing as a more inclusive and equitable organization under her leadership.”
