Sean Monroe

Partner
O'Melveny and Myers, LLP

Serving on the Board
since 2016


“I joined the Board of the Weingart Center in part to continue the legacy of involvement of O’Melveny with The Center since its opening in 1983.  Having moved to Los Angeles over 20 years ago, the seemingly intractable problem of homelessness has been a constant reminder to me of the need for those of us who are more fortunate, to find ways to lift up and support those who are not.  I am immensely proud of the work that the Weingart Center and its fabulous staff perform, its history and its exciting vision and plans for the future to expand its services and impact on our Community.”
