Supria Kuppuswamy, Esq., is a Legal Recruiter with The RMN Agency, a premier legal search firm in Atlanta that specializes in the placement of attorneys. With 15 years of career development and diversity, equity and inclusion experience within law firms and educational institutions, Supria brings to RMN her passion for working one-on-one with lawyers to help them identify their career and personal goals and values and find the professional opportunities that meet their needs.
Supria, a native Georgian, worked as a litigation associate at two Atlanta law firms, Swift, Currie, McGhee & Hiers, LLP and Savell & Williams, LLP. After four years of practice, Supria determined that practicing law wasn’t the right fit; having been actively involved in student organizations in college and law school, she transitioned into a position in higher educational administration in 2006, working as a career advisor for Emory Law School’s Office of Career Services. In this role, she worked with Emory Law students and alumni in all phases of their job search as well as student affinity bar associations with career programming.
Feeling the need to “shake up her life a bit”, Supria moved to New York City in fall 2009 and took on a position as the diversity & inclusion manager for Chadbourne & Parke LLP (since acquired by Norton Rose Fulbright), where she developed and oversaw initiatives to recruit, retain and promote diverse lawyers. During her tenure at Chadbourne, she completed an executive and organizational coaching certificate program through New York University and added career development to her portfolio of duties at the firm. She then moved into a role at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP in early 2016, working with the firm’s litigation department on career development for associates including staffing active matters and the performance management process, among other duties.
After a wonderfully enriching experience in New York, in May 2017, Supria returned to Atlanta to be closer to her family and assumed the University Title IX Coordinator position at Emory University, where she oversaw the university’s compliance with Title IX and other pertinent federal regulations. She then returned to work in the legal field, assuming a role as the firmwide diversity and inclusion manager for King & Spalding LLP, and most recently, engaging in her own executive coaching practice geared toward lawyers.
Supria received her Bachelor of Arts in English from Vanderbilt University and Juris Doctor from Washington University in St. Louis. She earned an additional Executive Coaching Certificate focusing on psychodynamic and brain-based coaching from Emory’s Executive Education Program and is certified to administer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Emotional Intelligence Assessments (EQ-I 2.0 and EQ 360).
