Topic: General Counsel Driving the Diversity & Collaboration Agenda.  

The January 2019 New York Times article reporting on the dearth of diversity in law firm partnership promotions was the latest wake-up-call of the significant diversity challenges plaguing the legal profession. An Open Letter response, now penned by more than 200 general counsel, pushes for greater diversity in the legal industry as well as tangible steps legal departments can take to inspire outside counsel change.  At the DEH Speaker Series/Greenberg Traurig event, a distinguished general counsel and management panel will explore how to collaborate with outside counsel to build a more diverse profession, improve talent development for all lawyers, and achieve better outcomes for clients.  The DEH Speaker Series/Greenberg Traurig hope you will join them for this thought provoking, interactive discussion that will explore hiring, developing and promoting diverse talent inside companies and at the law firms and legal service providers with whom they work.  
The DEH Speaker Series/Greenberg Traurig will announce a dynamic panel soon!
