    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) has been a topic of discussion in the legal profession for years. However, while increasingly more organizations are being proactive about DEI, there is still a lot more to be done to foster workplaces and a profession where everyone feels respected, valued, heard, and supported, and where equitable outcomes are achieved.

    A frequently discussed barrier to moving the needle forward is bias. Biases, such as unconscious, affinity, and confirmation, among others, can affect a diverse attorney's ability to get hired and advance through the ranks of a law firm and the legal profession all while receiving a competitive salary and benefits compared to those who traditionally have advanced to the highest levels of law firms and the legal profession. These biases can also impact our interactions with clients and others within the legal system, as well as degrade our decision making in the delivery of services.

    Biases can affect our overall well-being, particularly our emotional, occupational, and social well-being. However, wellness is not the absence of issues, including diversity, equity, and inclusion challenges. Legal professionals can benefit by bringing awareness to unconscious drivers and as a result, better understand the interrelatedness of DEI and wellness.

    Join us as Lea S. Gutierrez, Litigation Group Manager and Director of Diversity and Inclusion at the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois, German Gomez, Chair of the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility's (CPR) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, and Jessica Chinnadurai, Advisory Committee of the ABA's Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (CoLAP) discuss DEI and related issues in the legal profession.
