Strategies for Success ABA Diversity Series
What are the keys to reducing the impact of bias on decisions concerning associate advancement in the firm? If you have an interest in the impact of diversity on evaluations from the perspectives of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability, this webinar is for you! While this program is designed for law firm managers and senior level attorneys, associates will also benefit from the ideas of the panel, including discussion of helpful techniques for self-evaluation.
The Columbus Bar Association’s Managing Partners Diversity Initiative will host a group viewing of this live webcast on Friday, October 16, from 11:30am – 1:00pm in our offices. A lively panel discussion will focus on how fair evaluations help ensure opportunities for associates to work on complex matters for clients as well as for a variety of partners, improving skills, increasing a referral base, and achieving a high level of satisfaction sometimes missing among diverse lawyers.
Program Faculty includes Roberta D. Liebenberg, Chair, ABA Commission on Women in the Profession; Charles Brown, ABA Commission on Mental and Physical Disability Law; Paulette Brown, ABA Section on Individual Rights & Responsibilities; Linda Chanow, Assistant Director, Project for Attorney Retention; and James J. S. Holmes, ABA Commission on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.
