The BBA is thrilled to host and co-sponsor this program with the American Bar
Association and its Commission on Women
in the Profession.
Join us to learn how diversity dynamics impact attorneys at law firms,
corporate legal departments, and the legal profession with an emphasis on the
disparate impact on women of color.
During the presentation, the results of the ABA Commission on Women in the
Profession’s research in this area will be explored, focusing on the experiences
of women attorneys, particularly women of color, as they go through the four
major aspects of an attorney’s career: recruitment, hiring, retention, and
A panel discussion featuring prominent women corporate counsel and law firm
partners will follow highlighting strategies that women, especially women of
color, can use to overcome the barriers they face as they aim for the top
echelons of the legal profession. In addition, the Commission’s new online
programmatic toolkit, “From Visible Invisibility to Visibly Successful” will be
previewed. The toolkit offers ready-to-use slides, scenarios, and discussion
questions for use by law firms, corporate legal departments, and bar
associations to foster their own open dialogue about diversity dynamics.
