Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn about HR and organizational tools that promote gender and racial diversity and a culture of inclusion. 

How can your organization “get it right” on promoting diversity and inclusion throughout its ranks? Which tools can help your company foster a shared sense of mission and a culture that encourages teamwork among diverse groups while rewarding individual contributions? Hear from three leaders at Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP (BAL), an internationally recognized law firm ranked #1 on the National Law Journal’s Women in Law Scorecard (2019, 2020 and 2021) and #1 on The American Lawyer’s Diversity Scorecard (2020 and 2021)—in an industry that continues to struggle with diversity and female representation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss organizational models that encourage collaboration, instead of competition, among owners.
  • Learn how to cultivate an authentic culture of inclusion that goes beyond the four corners of a mission statement and permeates every level of your organization.
  • Review a real-life case study on how the Black Lives Matter movement created bottom-up change at Berry Appleman & Leiden.
