The reality and practicalities of addressing issues of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the workplace will be the focus of this CLE program.

  • What legal departments and law firms are and can be doing to promote, increase, and educate their attorneys on diversity, equity and inclusion
  • The explicit and implicit benefits diversity brings to law firms and businesses
  • Some steps that can be taken to improve diversity, equity and inclusion
