The obstacles that block women and minority attorneys from rising to the highest positions of power within law firms are still present. Eliminating these obstacles requires a fresh approach to the problem—the Organization Development perspective. Using models that explain how systems perpetuate bias and how to bring about behavioral changes in the decision-making of the empowered people within those systems, Susan Letterman White offers new ideas for law firms from the strategies that have worked in other organizations and the latest thinking on inclusions strategies.
