Complimentary Webinar: How to Build a Diversity Initiative in Support of ABA Resolution 113

Metropolitan Corporate Counsel invites you to join us for How to Build a Diversity Initiative in Support of ABA Resolution 113, a complimentary webinar on Wednesday, August 23rd at 1:00 pm EST.




With so many departments using e-billing systems today, it is easy to track work performed in hours and dollars down to the timekeeper level, rather than simply looking at firm ownership alone. Diversity information can be reported and used to demonstrate contributions to the corporate goals, create targets for improvement, and to initiate meaningful conversations with firms about hiring and staffing practices. This session will offer a facilitated discussion on the potential pitfalls, and ethical, legal, and privacy issues associated with building a diversity initiative.

Led by industry experts Kris Satkunas and Dan Ruderman of LexisNexis CounselLink, this event will include a panel of legal department executives discussing specific ways to champion a diversity initiative, including:

· establishing guidelines and expectations

· communicating with outside counsel

· building and evaluating a law firm panel that meets diversity goals

· communicating progress to internal stakeholders

By attending this online event you will come away with a specific process for asking for, capturing, and reporting on the timekeeper information gathered.

Those who register will also receive a link for on-demand viewing in case you are unable to attend the live event. We welcome you to forward this invitation to any of your colleagues who may find it to be of interest.
