9781107123656: Diversity in Practice: Race, Gender, and Class in Legal and Professional Careers (Cambridge Studies in Law and Society)

Expressions of support for diversity are nearly ubiquitous among contemporary law firms and corporations. Organizations back these rhetorical commitments with dedicated diversity staff and various diversity and inclusion initiatives. Yet, the goal of proportionate representation for people of color and women remains unrealized. Members of historically underrepresented groups remain seriously disadvantaged in professional training and work environments that white, upper-class men continue to dominate. While many professional labor markets manifest patterns of demographic inequality, these patterns are particularly pronounced in the law and elite segments of many professions. Diversity in Practice analyzes the disconnect between expressed commitments to diversity and practical achievements, revealing the often obscure systemic causes that drive persistent professional inequalities. These original contributions build on existing literature and forge new paths in explaining enduring patterns of stratification in professional careers. These more realistic assessments provide opportunities to move beyond mere rhetoric to something approaching diversity in practice.

Book Description:

For firm leaders; diversity professionals; aspiring professionals; and scholars of inequality, organizations, and the professions; in short, anyone interested in diversity in professional work, this book is an indispensable resource. It reveals the mechanisms that perpetuate inequality even as professional organizations pay lip service to creating more diverse workforces.

About the Author:

Spencer Headworth is Graduate Research Coordinator at the American Bar Foundation and a Ph.D. candidate in Northwestern University's Department of Sociology. He studies crime and social control, law, inequality, organizations, and professions. His dissertation, 'Policing Welfare', examines dedicated welfare fraud control units, a novel intersection between the worlds of public benefits and law enforcement.
