In regards to both human resources and client relationships, diversity is becoming more of a priority for law firms in the twenty-first century. Quality employees can be of any race and gender or religion, sexuality, age, and class and they're more likely to remain with a company that recognizes and supports that fact. As different demographics become more a part of society, and as the economy becomes increasingly global, clients are also likely to come from diverse backgrounds, and to look for law firms that will understand their experience and values. Furthermore, it's not enough these days to simply make an effort for company photos. Firms have to support diversity at every level and across a number of processes, including recruitment, compensation, promotion, culture, and work-life balance. In Building and Encouraging Law Firm Diversity, skilled managing partners as well as directors of human resources, diversity, and development offer the benefits of their expertise. Making a firm diverse is a complex matter and requires significant effort, but increased client loyalty and employee retention are excellent returns, and this book provides valuable insights into achieving them.

Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business and legal intelligence from leading C-Level executives and lawyers. Each chapter offers thought leadership and expert analysis on an industry, profession, or topic, providing a future-oriented perspective and proven strategies for success. Each author has been selected based on their experience and C-Level standing within the business and legal communities.
