Inclusion Strategies: Retain and Promote

It is common knowledge that the legal community remains one of the least diverse. Large law firms have made strides towards hiring diverse candidates but work is still to be done in retaining top talent. Retaining and developing those individuals and leveraging the diverse perspectives they convey is where the true challenge lies. This session will provide best practices from companies and firms that champion the value of a diverse and inclusive workforce. Hear from legal and corporate leaders who have achieved success in this area and explore common challenges in maintaining a diverse legal team.
