Diversity and Inclusion is a particularly ‘hot’ topic in any industry but with recent scrutiny of law firms, it is important to know what law firms are doing and why effective Diversity and Inclusion policies are important. To help with this discussion I talk to Dr Catherine McGregor about her experiences working with law firms on diversity and inclusion and how a diverse workspace can benefit firms.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
