As we approach ELM Amplify 2020, the ELM Solutions online user conference, we are highlighting a few of the informative and thought-provoking sessions that will be a part of this unique event. Keep checking back to the blog for more about what you can expect at ELM Amplify.
For many companies, it has been a challenge to improve the diversity of the teams that execute the legal function. This is particularly true of the law firms they work with, where only 24 percent of partners are women, 9.5 percent are people of color, only 3.5 percent are women of color, and numbers among associates are also not representative of parity.
On October 21, join our ELM Amplify session Turn Up the Volume to Boost Legal Diversity to hear from law department leaders who are working to improve this reality. Topics will include:
- The concern that recessions, such as the one we are currently facing due to the global pandemic, can hamper efforts to improve diversity
- The diversity numbers among summer associates and how these percentages are trending
- The innovative methods many organizations are using to increase diversity
Legal operations professionals and attorneys who are focused on diversity and inclusion in the legal profession will share their observations of the current landscape, common challenges, and strategies for initiating positive change.
