An Innovate Legal Online Virtual Meetup

Equality and Equity in the Law: Empowering Diverse Leaders

A more equitable law firm is a stronger law firm. Learn how we can dismantle barriers and build the pipeline of leaders with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Inclusivity in the legal industry matters—both within the internal structures of law firms and in the delivery of legal services to clients. By consciously reframing antiquated ideas of what a lawyer or law firm looks like, we can make legal services more accessible and representative to all people seeking them.

This panel will discuss how today’s lawyers can translate these ideas into programs that support an inclusive practice and promote the professional growth of underrepresented groups at your firm. The panel will also discuss how diverse teams and adaptable working opportunities can support more agile working practices and an increased range of perspectives—which can, in turn, propel your business forward.
