Understanding Different Perspectives
Let’s be honest - while there may be a lot more diversity at the junior levels of this profession, if you’re hanging out at the top, the view is a lot different. If you grew up in a different reality than many of the people that you work with, it’s pretty tough to understand their realities unless you ask and listen.
In this profession, we don’t do enough asking and we don’t do enough listening. The result is a very clear DEI problem in the legal profession - one that’s causing a whole host of issues, despite every firm advertising their commitment to DEI.
We’ve heard countless stories of racism, sexism, and every other -ism. For firms and members of the profession that are serious about DEI, this session is for you. It’s time to listen to a diverse group of voices - people from all sorts of different backgrounds - who are here to share their realities.
