How can a company’s legal department contribute to overall organizational diversity? There isn’t a single answer to this question: there are many! This panel of in-house legal experts will describe how technology has advanced their internal recruiting, hiring and promotion practices, and external vendor selection with an eye toward improving diversity. We’ll also explore how ground-breaking analytical tools and metrics can help legal teams examine the demographic and ideological range of their outside counsel and how they can use technology—whether as a carrot or a stick—to promote more inclusive practices within their teams and across their outside service providers.
