Welcome to our new ELG Co-Chairs: Darnell Cage and Ashley Brosius


TCDIP is pleased to welcome Darnell Cage and Ashley Brosius as Co-Chairs of the Emerging Leaders Group! ELG creates programming and opportunities for attorneys with 1-8 years of experience, including mentoring our 1L Clerks, developing networking events and opportunities, and engaging in volunteering opportunities throughout the community. We are looking forward to the energy that Ashley and Darnell will bring to the ELG Team!

Darnell Cage moved to the Twin Cities from St. Louis, and TCDIP has been an integral part of his connection to the Twin Cities legal community. With minimal contacts after moving to the Twin Cities, TCDIP stepped up and provided opportunities to meet like-minded professionals. Darnell has already supported TCDIP in several ways, including providing content for our social media campaigns and serving on the Nominating Committee and Outreach Committee. Darnell is looking forward to expanding engagement with ELG and providing a welcoming community for new attorneys within the Twin Cities.

Ashley Brosius also found community in TCDIP as a transplant to the Twin Cities, and seeks to expand that community. Ashley has served on TCDIP’s Professional Development Committee and has helped coordinate Wells Fargo’s involvement in the TCDIP 1L Clerkship program. As ELG looks forward, Ashley is excited to expand the opportunities at ELG, including organizing new community initiatives and mentorship opportunities.

Join us in welcoming Darnell Cage and Ashley Brosius as ELG Co-Chairs!
