Initiatives in U.S. Law Firms to help women lawyers achieve their potential
July 13, 2015
Following on from my report of the conference of English lawyers “Opening Doors and Removing Glass Ceilings – Widening Participation in the Legal Professions” yesterday (http://halebury.passle.net/post/102cuzr/success-in-legal-careers-for-those-who-arent-privileged-white-men) I am pleased to come across this article by Pamela DeNeuve on efforts to achieve gender equity in the U.S. Recommended reading.
I have found that incorporating a gender equity plan in a firm is as simple as the entire firm putting on a new pair of glasses. Suddenly firm management sees a plethora of opportunities to move women up the ranks that previously would not have been noticed. When the goals are manageable and achievable; it engenders an enthusiasm within the firm.
