Progress in Diversity and Inclusion in the Legal Profession

FL CLE Requirements Credit Type: General

Running Time: 1 Hours, 0 Minutes

FL CLE Course Details:

The 2020 Model Diversity Survey Report, released by the ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession, is the first ABA report on diversity, equity and inclusion in law firm practice, according to an ABA press release. The survey is based on three years of data. In short, the Report states that while more minorities are getting hired as associates, law firm leadership is mostly white and male because of a diversity ?bottleneck? and higher rates of minority attrition.

In this program, attorney Steven A. Nielsen reflects upon what the Report means in terms of the lack of the progress it describes. The focus of this presentation, however, is to provide a long-range perspective on this important subject and to highlight progress which the profession has made. He offers information on new, innovative programs which have been developed to address the inequities outlined in the ABA report and in society at large, and concrete steps which can help Diversity and Inclusion issues to be successfully addressed in the law office environment. Mr. Neilsen's candid assessment of the data, coupled with a review of how new Diversity and Inclusion programs and educational awareness have helped the profession make progress, makes for an informative and stimulating presentation.
