Strategies for Diverse Attorneys to Survive and Thrive While Working from Home

Strategies for Diverse Attorneys to Survive and Thrive While Working from Home

Co-Sponsored by Minority Corporate Counsel Association, National Bar Association and National Employment Law Council

COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted underrepresented communities across the US in a variety of ways, including a disparate impact on work and career felt among attorneys from underrepresented communities. The ABA is pleased to partner with the National Employment Law Council, the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, and the National Bar Association to engage in a town hall-style discussion about tools diverse attorneys can employ to survive and thrive in the workplace, including:

  • Continuing to find work and bringing in new business
  • Maintaining forward career/performance progression (if things were going well before COVID-19)
  • Overcoming roadblocks and performance challenges in a virtual workplace (if things were not going well before COVID-19)
  • Building/re-building your personal brand
