This panel will discuss the hurdles, hassles, and heartaches of achieving long-term legal careers for women of color vis a vis the published ABA Report “Left Out and Left Behind” by Destiny Peery, Paulette Brown, and Eileen Letts. Join us as we discuss how and why little has changed for women of color in the legal industry, and evaluate various recommendations for lasting change.
- How to adapt best practices for reducing biases in decision making processes;
- Improving access to mentors and sponsors for women of color and intersectional individuals;
- Looking beyond recruitment towards retention of diverse lawyers;
- Incorporating an intersectional approach when addressing diversity;
- Creating a more inclusive culture in law firms, generally.
