The How & Why of DE&I: Implementing an Inclusion Plan in Corporations

Christina Alabi, Sainabou Sonko, Joy Monahan, Angela Martin, and Darryl Wilson

Does your corporation walk the walk and talk the talk? Join the ABA Young Lawyers Division’s Diversity & Inclusion Team and top diversity officers within the business world as we tackle the critical topic of diversity & inclusion plans within corporate America.

During the session panelists will discuss how their respective organizations view DE&I internally and promote it within their legal departments. They will also discuss how these goals and vision should develop the pipeline through the hiring and retention of historically underrepresented attorneys and why meaningful diversity, equity, & inclusion goals should extend beyond their organization to outside counsel.

Attendees will leave empowered to eliminate bias, increase diversity and inclusion, and foster meaningful conversation within the workplace.
