Harnessing Technology to Drive D&I
July 15, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Please join Gretchen C. Bellamy, JD, LLM, Senior Director of Education, Operations and Initiatives, University Office for Diversity and Inclusion, as she shares her perspective on “Can Technology Accelerate Change for Talent and D&I in the Legal Sector?”
Clients are asking for better outcomes around talent and D&I from law firms, but change seems slow to come. Industry data shows improvement at junior levels but little or no change at senior levels (and in some cases even movement backwards). Technology promises to be a strong tool in our arsenal to allow clients and law firms to collaborate to unlock the much-needed changes in the legal sector to level the playing field for diverse talent. Join the InterLaw Diversity Forum for a look into the future with a panel of innovators and trend setters including Microsoft‘s Rebecca H. Benavides, Alacrity Law‘s Christopher Thurn, VF Corporation‘s Kellye Gordon (whose brands include Eastpak, JanSport, The North Face, a VF Company, Vans, a VF Company, Dickies®, a VF Company, and Timberland, a VF Company) and the American Bar Association, who have created effective tools to harness technology and drive real change for talent.
