 2018 Annual Conference Major Sponsors!!

NELC Welcomes
Adelmise Rosemé Warner to the Board of Directors

Adelmise has been a member of NELC since 2013, and has served in various capacities over the years, including speaking on panels and co-chairing the Annual Conference for multiple years. She has benefited so much from the programming put on by NELC (including the Annual Conference), as well as the networking and fellowship.

When at 16, Adelmise Rosemé Warner moved from Haiti to the U.S., she threw herself into learning English for the first time. Within two years, she'd been admitted to UC Berkeley. Today, she's the Chief Counsel for Employment, Compensation and Benefits at America's leading online radio company—Pandora.

She moved to the United States when she was a sophomore in high school. She did not speak any English, and worked extremely hard (taking English as a Second Language classes) to graduate and get admitted into college. She was accepted into UC Berkeley, where she dreamed of becoming a doctor, but I quickly realized that was not the direction she should be going, so she decided to major in Political Science instead. During her junior year [of undergrad], she interned at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as part of UC Berkeley’s "Cal in the Capital" Program and found herself interested in employment-related issues—like discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and the process for addressing those issues in the workplace, and so I decided to apply to law school.

Adelmise realized she really loved employment law in her first year at UC Hastings. After graduating in 2001, she took a job at Heller Ehrman as an Employment Law Associate. “As I worked with various clients and advised them on employment-related issues, I realized that, ultimately, I wanted to work in-house with companies and partner with Human Resources proactively to address issues in the workplace.”

Important lesson learned - "Development and mentorship are of the utmost importance. I am always looking for ways for me to develop in my career and learn new things.  Being a leader inherently means that you have to be a mentor and take a proactive approach to developing and growing your team members."

Favorite quote:

“When you face obstacles along the way, look back at where you came from to gain strength, look forward to face the obstacles, but don’t ever give up.” — Nélia Filogene (her grandmother)
