Data collected during the recession of 2008 tells us that diverse professionals in the law are the first to experience layoffs during economic downturns. What can leaders in the legal industry do now to prevent this from happening again? Is it possible to increase diversity and inclusion and focus on ROI and profitability at the same time?
Join us on June 30 at 4:00pm EDT as our CEO, Bryan Parker, moderates a discussion with Paulette Brown, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer and Senior Partner at Locke Lorde, Sekou Kaalund, Managing Director, Head of Advancing Black Pathways at JPMorgan Chase, Laura Maechtlen, Partner at Seyfarth and Chair of The Belonging Project, Evan Parker, Founder of Parker Analytics, and Joel Stern, CEO of The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law firms (NAMWOLF). The group will share their experiences and insights, including:
- Recent studies and data to help you make the business case that diversity and inclusion is essential to your corporate culture now, and that it can lead to increased profitability and improved ROI.
- Case studies to highlight the steps that Big Law, corporate legal departments, and other organizations in the law are taking to preserve and improve diversity and inclusion during the current pandemic, as well as their plans for the future.
- Actions you can take at an executive and cross-functional level to improve diversity and inclusion over the short- and long-term.
