Diversity & Inclusion
LMA is firmly committed to fostering diversity and inclusion within our membership and within the legal marketing profession as a whole, as well as enabling members to do the same within their firms. Until and unless we increase D&I within our departments we cannot influence and increase D&I in our profession and the industry. We must acknowledge these dependencies and set a gold standard example.
D&I in our industry today is led and influenced mostly by law firm clients and prospects, and as a result we often make changes only in reaction to their prompts. LMA is committed to partnering with organizations such as the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium (CLOC) to call for change within our industry and profession.
Through our Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the Diversity and Inclusion Shared Interest Group (SIG), LMA is equipping members with tools, training and programming; and, partnering with other organizations to foster change within LMA, at our members' law firms and within the broader professional legal community.
The Diversity and Inclusion Committee is responsible for making recommendations to the LMA Board of Directors, Regional Governing Boards, staff and other LMA leadership bodies about actions that will improve diversity and inclusion of the LMA membership and its programs and services. The D&I Committee will also track progress against this goal and spotlight and celebrate successes within the organization. The committee also supports initiatives that help position LMA within the industry as an advocate for change in this important area.
