Diversity and Inclusion Fundamentals for Your Law Firm

June 11

Making your firm feel inclusive is vital to developing a strong team. With this course you will understand how to build a team that is inclusive, diverse, and driven. Everyone in your firm has a special talent, bring out those gifts and build the best team around you.

When you move beyond the decades old call for diversity and start inclusion initiatives, you will increase collaboration, innovation and morale at your firm. In the traditional viewpoint of diversity, individual physical characteristics are identified. Inclusion is making associates included in the planning, goals and the forward movement of the organization. Diversity refers to the individuals from different backgrounds and ethnicities that form your team or workforce. By embracing the diversity that has been established in the organization and then moving to inclusive initiatives, you, as a manager, will work to treat diverse others with respect and help them reach their potential and work at the top of their capabilities. With inclusion as part of your culture, your firm will be more profitable.
