Join our panel discussion for a thought-provoking, action-oriented dialogue on what it will take to change the numbers and move toward real diversity in law firms. Drawing on content presented within the Commission on Women in the Profession's new report, From Visible Invisibility to Visibly Successful: Success Strategies for Law Firms and Women of Color in Law Firms, this program will be an interactive discussion with a specific focus on what it will take to increase the success of women of color in law firms across the country. The new report is the follow-up publication to the Commission's Visible Invisibility: Women of Color in Law Firms (2006), the ground-breaking national study that explored the intersectionality of race and gender in law firms.
