Diversity Summit: Practical, Intense, All-in
Many law firms in the U.S. continue to face headwinds as they strive to build a diverse team of lawyers to serve clients and drive business success. The fact is that creating a culture where diversity can thrive is a nuanced and complicated process. Even when initial recruiting efforts yield outstanding results, a disappointing pattern often asserts itself: diverse lawyers departing after just a few years, disillusioned by law firm life generally, or feeling that they were never accepted to the degree they had hoped.
Dechert’s Diversity Committee is comprised of partners, associates and administrators from around the globe. The purpose of the committee is to transform the firm’s mission from words into action by focusing on recruiting, professional development and community outreach.
