    A candid discussion regarding industry expectations for increasing diversity. What real diversity looks like; why it matters to clients; and why it should matter to you. This panel will explore the value increased diversity brings to companies through who they hire and retain (inside and outside counsel). In addition, panelists will share steps that corporate legal departments are taking to measure diversity performance at law firms, as well as the challenges corporate legal departments face in implementing and measuring the diversity initiatives of the law firms they employ.

The panel will focus on providing strategies for overcoming institutional, cultural, and  other barriers to increasing diversity in the legal profession. The judges on the panel will focus on the view from the bench of diversity in our profession and will make the case for the need for increased diversity in the legal community. The panel also includes “pipeline” experts, who will help identify issues facing our legal community when it comes to recruitment and retention of diverse attorneys. They will also explore practical strategies firms can employ to increase the number of diverse attorneys thereby increasing the opportunities to hire diverse attorneys.
