Join us for this informative webinar regarding the current state of the legal industry and corporate America with regard to racial diversity. We will explore a variety of topics, including the very relevant topic of how to ensure that diverse candidates not only get hired, but are also retained in positions of power.  

Topics

  • What are the existing problems law firms and private employers face regarding diversity, generally?  
  • Does the size of the employer matter in terms of retention and promotion of diverse candidates? 
  • How law firms and private employers recognize and dismantle barriers to minority representation at the most senior levels
  • What kind of policies, procedures, and/or rules should law firms and private employers put in place to raise consciousness regarding race, gender, sexual orientation, intersectionality, etc.?
