Davis Brown employment law attorney Michele (Warnock) Brott was recently selected for the 2016-2017 class of the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute.
The Community Leadership Program of the GDMLI is the premier leadership development program in central Iowa. Participants engage in nine months of education and hands-on learning as they develop leadership skills and lead a transformative project for a local non-profit group.
Michele grew up in Des Moines and graduated from East High School and Drake University. She has been an active leader in the community for several years. She has been a volunteer with the Chrysalis Foundation for a number of years and recently completed a term as President of the Board of Directors. She also serves on the board of CFUM, Children and Family Urban Movement.
In her professional work, Michele represents employers, advising management on how to mitigate risk and achieve business goals. She is an editor of the Iowa Employment Law Letter, a subscription newsletter for Iowa employers to stay abreast of HR related legal matters, and frequently speaks to groups of employers and HR managers.
About the Community Leadership Program, Michele said, “This opportunity will allow me to become more active in the community, while meeting, connecting with, and learning from others.”
Davis Brown’s commitment to leadership and community development goes back to the founding of the firm. A. Arthur Davis, a name partner of the firm, was one of the original founders of the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute in 1979 and since that time, over 25 Davis Brown attorneys have completed the program dedicating thousands of hours to community service.
