It has never been more critical for law firms to demonstrate their commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

Even if your firm has established DEI policies in place, that alone isn’t enough to move the needle and have enough impact to accelerate positive change and cultural growth, which is direly needed in the legal industry – and as stewards of the law, is expected to be part of our ethos. Clients are looking for firms that are moving beyond merely focusing on diversity and combining their diversity strategy with inclusion and equity as complementary priorities. 

Firms, large and small, are acknowledging the reality that promotion of DEI is not only a moral imperative but also an essential element to remaining competitive in a crowded marketplace and fast-changing world.


The PBA Large Law Firm Committee and PBI invite you to attend a program that will show you how to convert your firm’s initiative concepts into action, develop long-term and sustainable solutions, and foster industry change by collaborating with legal departments to advance DEI, including the following areas: 

  • Building the proper infrastructure 
  • Taking an integrated and systemic approach to DEI strategy: embedding throughout employment lifecycle
  • Client engagement and partnership
  • How to measure progress: industry benchmarks and programs
  • Talent recruitment and retention: developing a robust training regimen
  • Examples of effective initiatives 

Co-sponsored with the PBA Large Law Firm Committee  & PBA Women in the Profession Commission .

All attendees will receive the course book as a digital download.

Recorded in June 2022.
