Leaders in the legal profession always say the right things about diversity and inclusions, so why do the actual numbers lag so far behind?
In this week’s edition of The Jabot, I talk to Sara Eng, VP of Legal Partnerships at InCloudCounsel, about how the industry can make real changes to move the diversity needle. We discuss what it is about law firms that disproportionately limits the advancement of diverse lawyers, how firms can change their hiring practices to improve diversity at their firm, and how alternate work environments can bridge the diversity gap.
The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wears when delivering dissents from the bench. It’s a reminder that even when we aren’t winning, we’re still a powerful force to be reckoned with.
