Are diverse attorneys truly discriminated against in the legal profession? Have you ever witnessed an act of discrimination? Perhaps it’s an excuse.
Do you wonder why your employer dedicates so many resources to diversity efforts? If so, you probably don’t want to think about adding inclusiveness initiatives to those efforts.
Despite these efforts to recruit and hire diverse attorneys, however, attrition rates remain high. There has been little change in the numbers of diverse attorneys occupying leadership roles over the past few years.
Diversity and inclusion makes for smarter individuals, organizations and companies. There is no denying it. CLI’s goal of helping legal organizations create cultures of inclusion through education and support dovetails directly with every legal organization’s objective of growth and innovation. CLI is essential in helping organizations recognize that the growth and innovation they seek can be achieved through a diverse employee population and an inclusive work culture. CLI offers step-by-step guidance in this area.
