About the Program
Culture not only gives meaning to or provides context for the work that we do and the products/services that we create and offer. But culture is also our social capital and an asset to be carefully nurtured. Despite the legal profession’s focus on diversity and inclusion over the past several decades, the percentage of female partners in law firms has remained disproportionately low. Recognizing both pressure from clients to field more diverse legal teams and the reality that diversity and inclusion represent a significant competitive advantage, mid-sized law firms are aspiring to promote inclusion and increase diversity among its ranks. This lively panel discussion will shine a light on what some mid-sized law firms are doing to implement new hiring and promotion practices, improving the pipeline of women eligible for partnership—while exploring the relationship between organizational culture and business performance, profitability, growth, client satisfaction, and innovation.
