The New Call to Action in a COVID-19 Era: The D&I Challenge Ahead for the Legal Industry

Littler Principal Cindy-Ann Thomas, Mishell Parreno Taylor, Littler Shareholder, and Kiara Harlow, Senior Recruiting Director of The Partners Group, present a multifaceted examination of the diversity and inclusion challenges ahead for the legal industry as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

In this podcast, Cindy-Ann and her guests address the following:

  • How will the pandemic crisis and associated fiscal fallout affect the legal industry’s efforts in the D&I space?
  • Why and how are female attorneys and attorneys of color disproportionally affected by the steps that law firms have taken to weather the crisis?
  • How does the killing of George Floyd and the resulting nationwide social unrest compound the pandemic crisis and further impact the industry’s efforts in D&I?
  • What can law firms do to protect any gains they have made to advance diversity in the profession since recovering from the last global crisis?
