Brionna Denby will serve on the panel, “From Recruitment to Retention: Attracting and Keeping Diverse Talent,” at the virtual Women in Law Summit Series’ Driving Diversity in Law & Leadership: Philadelphia.
According to McKinsey & Company, the Harvard Business Review, and other highly respected institutions, organizations that commit themselves to diversity are more successful and more profitable. However, this means much more than just checking off boxes. True commitment means creating a culture of inclusion that goes beyond a diverse workforce.
This panel will explore:
- Recruitment and hiring strategies designed to counteract unconscious bias
- What steps law firms can take to retain diverse talent
- How In-House counsel can have a direct impact by fostering an inclusive culture within their departments and committing to hiring law firms that employ and promote diversity and inclusion
- What we as individuals can do to uplift women and minorities thereby creating equity in the workplace
