Per the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, minorities in large law firms have been on the rise since 1975. Though progress in the legal industry continues, there is much more to be done. Decades later, the legal community is discovering the financial and business benefits of a diverse legal workforce.
In today’s competitive legal environment, tangible financial benefits exist when embracing a diverse workforce: client retention, employee/attorney engagement and higher productivity. How much are firms financially gaining from diversity? What impact does a diverse legal workforce have on the bottom line? How does this apply to my firm/organization?
