MSP Fall Forum Panel 2 - Advancing Women of Color in the Private Sector (in person only)

Wednesday, November 30, 2022 | 6:30 PM EST - 7:30 PM EST
According to NALP’s 2021 Report on Diversity at U.S. Law Firms, just over 4% of U.S. law firm partners are women of color, and Black and Latinx women each represent less than 1% of all partners in U.S. law firms. Contrastingly, law firm summer associate ranks are much more diverse, and they demonstrate potential to contribute to more diverse partnership ranks in the future - women of color comprised 25.14% of the 2021 summer associate class at U.S. law firms. This panel discussion will examine the systemic barriers that impede the advancement of women of color to the partnership ranks of law firms and highlight meaningful interventions that legal employers can implement to retain, develop and promote the advancement of women of color in the private sector.
