The Commission on Women in the Profession recently analyzed the results of its survey of diversity dynamics in Fortune 500 corporate legal departments. The results of the newly released report will be previewed, focusing on the experiences of women attorneys, particularly women of color as they go through the four major aspects of an attorney’s career: recruitment, hiring, retention, and advancement. A panel discussion featuring former and current prominent women corporate counsel will follow focusing on strategies on how women, especially women of color, can overcome the barriers they face as they aim for the top echelons of the legal profession.
