In-House Departments & Law Firms Driving Diversity & Inclusion Together: More Than Just Talk

Sponsored by  mccarthy tétrault the canadian bar association

Diversity and inclusion have been a topic of discussion between in-house counsel and law firms for many years now; however, action and results have been slower to materialize. Generously sponsored by McCarthy Tétrault, this webinar is an open discussion on obstacles and successes, sharing the results of one organization's internal survey of law firms, and introducing a new tool all in-house counsel can use to achieve real action.
