As a commitment to increasing and embracing diversity within the legal department, Sims created two new internship programs specifically providing law students from diverse populations the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a variety of areas relevant to the media industry. For Sims, collaboration is the key to building a great team and to delivering best-in-class legal services on a global scale. By advocating for a diverse workforce with colleagues both internally and externally, Sims has been integral in helping Discovery and the industry at large to build and nurture a diverse and inclusive workplace that attracts, retains and rewards exceptional talent. Sims says, “My best advice for fostering open, honest communication is focusing on being transparent, authentic and respectful in how one communicates with others.”
