Why You Should Attend

The challenges of creating an inclusive work environment remain great. At this year's Diversity and Inclusion program, a renowned faculty of practitioners, in-house counsel, diversity directors and related professionals will discuss recent legal developments that impact diversity, the current status of key diversity initiatives, recruiting practices, and the challenges and best practices for achieving a diverse workplace.

  • Recruiting practices, from law school to lateral partners; post-Fisher, is anything different?
  • The corporate perspective on diversity and inclusion; what are the expectations and requirements for outside counsel? Recruitment and pipeline issues post-Fisher; talent development: what can law firms and law departments do together?
