Join Priori Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Mirra Levitt for a DEI discussion hosted by Ad Idem Network
Interested in hearing a conversation about diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the legal industry and receiving CLE credit? Join Priori Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Mirra Levitt and a group of other industry experts for a CLE* webinar, Diversity Equity & Inclusion: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know in 2023, with the Ad Idem Network on February 16, 2023 at 4 p.m. ET.
The data regarding DEI impact on companies is clear: Not only is it the right thing to do to make the working world more equitable, but it is also the right thing to do by shareholders and to improve the bottom line. McKinsey’s most recent report about DEI, released in May 2020, shows that companies in the top quartile regarding gender and ethnic diversity significantly outperformed those in the bottom quartile (by 25% for gender diversity and 36% for ethnic diversity).
When it comes to improving DEI, it’s safe to say the legal industry lags behind many others—for example, the 2021 ABA Model Diversity Survey summarized its findings as: “White attorneys, male attorneys, non-LGBTQ+ attorneys, and attorneys without disabilities dominate in representation within law firms and therefore in hires, promotions, leadership, and compensation.” Addressing this discrepancy is extremely important and part of what inspires Priori’s Marketplace and Scout products’ innovation in making diversity data more easily discoverable.
At this CLE event, you’ll hear prominent corporate counsel and practitioners discuss DEI in the industry and why it is important to corporate counsel in achieving their companies’ goals. They will also talk about the challenges faced by corporate legal departments and law firms in the DEI space and share thoughts and strategies to improve DEI outcomes and positively impact the industry.
Introduced by Canby B. Wood, Global Director of Litigation Solutions, LexFusion & Co-Founder, Ad Idem Network, Levitt will discuss these topics with a knowledgeable roundtable of experts, including:
Sneha Desai, Chief Legal Counsel, Global Litigation & Employment, Stryker
Justin Goggins, Principal Commercial Litigator, Apple
Yodi S. Hailemariam, Associate General Counsel | eDiscovery and Information Governance, Meta
