[ABOUT THE DIVERSITY LAB]
The Diversity Lab creates and invests in innovative talent management and diversity initiatives. Data and design-thinking are at the core of everything the Lab does. The Lab’s hallmark project – the OnRamp Fellowship – has helped boost diversity in law firms as the first “Returnship” ever launched in the legal profession for women lawyers. The Fellowship has now expanded into corporations and financial services firms. Other current projects include:
— TalentThinkTank.com – Examining innovative talent practices in recruitment, development, and diversity (collaborative blog with more than 25 talent thought leaders)
— Judicial Diversity Initiative – Providing diverse lawyers with details on how to apply for state judgeships and a listing of current openings across the U.S.
— WomenLegalExperts.com – Promoting successful women lawyers across the country who have been identified as experts in their field by Chambers and BTI (Launching in Summer 2016)
— Culture Analysis – Facilitating the first empirical study with legal departments, law firms, and financial services firms to better understand the organizations’ overall cultures as well as the micro-cultures that exist in each practice group/division
