Getting Inclusive About Inclusion: Adding Age to the DEI Conversation in the Legal Profession

DEI has expanded to include many factors. Age has not been one of them. With 5 generations in the workplace, where do “age” and “ageism” belong in our discussion about inclusion?

This panel of law firm and in-house lawyers and DEI thought leaders will discuss why and how law firms and legal departments can add "age" and "generational inclusion" to the DEI conversation. You will hear first-hand how one law firm has already successfully taken steps to create a more inclusive multigenerational environment and how your organization can do so as well.
