Law firms are under the microscope, for what is on the whole, a dismal track record on diversity & inclusion. Clients and reporters are watching closely, and speaking out, when they don’t like what they see. The few brave law firms that are venturing out to promote what they do externally are sometimes criticized or ridiculed. Meanwhile, the scant number of firms that are working to communicate efforts internally are struggling to get internal engagement around diversity and inclusion. Are law firms in a Catch 22?
