The Business Case for Diversity and Inclusion:
A Law Firm Perspective

Sponsored by:


Did you know?

  • Less than 15% of all lawyers in firms are minorities. When limited to only African-Americans and Hispanics, that number decreases to less than 7%.
  • Clients are asking firms to provide evidence of their diversity, policies and initiatives, including specific requests about supplier diversity.

In this one hour session, you will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the business case for Diversity and Inclusion in law firms
  • Learn the framework for a successful Diversity and Inclusion strategy in a law firm
  • Receive the tools and resources to implement or improve a Diversity and Inclusion strategy at your firm

In preparation for the event, the speaker requests that all attendees, as well as non-attending GCC members, complete a short diversity and inclusion survey.  The survey can be found here.
