There are enormous benefits of diversity, and many reasons why law firms should strive to become more diverse and inclusive. These benefits include: READ MORE >
There has been a tremendous amount of energy and attention devoted to increasing diversity and inclusion in law firms, and yet women, attorneys of color, LGBTQ attorneys, and other diverse attorneys continue to lag behind. Women account for less than a quarter of all law firm partners, the percentage of African-American associates has just this year surpassed 2009 levels, and attrition is a major problem, as diverse attorneys are leaving law firms at disproportionate rates because they feel marginalized, undervalued, and without any meaningful future in those institutions.

One of the strangest things that I see regularly is attorneys who make sexual orientation, politics, religion, and social activism part of their job search.

Regardless of who you are, everyone needs encouragement—and attorneys are no exception.
Since you (presumably) spend the majority of your time at work, encouragement at work is even more important. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of encouragement in the law firm world. Any encouragement that does exist only comes when an attorney bills a lot of hours, which may lead to a higher bonus and being told they are doing well. An attorney who brings in a lot of business may also be encouraged. READ MORE >
