The Coordinating Group on Practice Forward and the Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession are pleased to present a program that will provide participants with statistics demonstrating the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on lawyers of color, women, individuals with disabilities, individuals who identify as LGBTQ+, caregivers, and seniors.
This program is filled with best practices and policies on how law firms and employers can take into account and address this impact as they develop and implement their back-to-work plans.
The program will feature: 1) key findings from the Practice Forward survey, Practicing Law In the Pandemic and Moving Forward: Results and Best Practices from a Nationwide Survey of the Legal Profession ; 2) recommendations from a proposed policy resolution addressing these issues; and 3) a panel of law firm and DEI leaders from different practice settings discussing post-pandemic return-to-work and how they plan to foster a healthy and productive work environment for disproportionately impacted groups. This program is not to be missed by legal employers and bar associations!
