Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Panel: The Importance of Promoting an Inclusive Environment within the Legal Profession
If the last year has taught us anything, creating a diverse and inclusive culture within our society has been historically difficult and the legal profession is no exception. The goal of this presentation is to unlock unconscious bias and motivate attorneys and business professionals to take meaningful steps toward effective DEI policies that will benefit you, your clients, and your business. We will have an open conversation regarding the necessity for the legal community to take the lead in fostering more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments in and out of the courtroom as well as our virtual offices. We will discuss the lingering impact of implicit bias within our profession and share best practices for combating stereotypes that no longer serve our profession based on real life examples.
Please join the BP Lawyers Affinity Group with moderator Tiffiny Walls-Fox, and panelists Angela Zanin, Atyria Clark, Brenna Harwell, Nathan Sessoms, and Mariana Noli.
