Critical Conversations: Retaining Diverse Lawyers in the Legal Profession
May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Promoting the culture of diversity is important for all professions, but it is especially lacking in the legal field. In fact, the legal profession is among the least diverse professions in the United States. Diversity and inclusion in the legal organizations help lawyers to identify and embrace different backgrounds and contribute to the overall advancement of the profession. There are several factors that impede the prevalence of diversity in the legal field, including the retention of diverse lawyers within the profession. Join our panel of experts as we discuss how to overcome these obstacles by providing growth opportunities for minority lawyers, developing tools for diverse candidates to succeed, and creating pathways to leadership and equity positions.
