Driving Diversity in Law and Leadership: New York

New York
Awareness Into Action


Society is calling for change, and businesses are racing to pivot DEI initiatives from being a “should have” wish list item to a “must have” priority; and giving leaders passionate about DEI the perfect opening, and the power, to create true, sustainable change in their workplaces.


The Driving Diversity in Law and Leadership Summit is an annual event dedicated to exploring and brainstorming solutions to these issues within the legal sector by creating a platform for leaders and stakeholders to exchange ideas, network, and learn latest trends and best practices to driving diversity.


We are excited to announce that this year’s conference will feature engaging keynote speeches, interactive panel discussions, and informative breakout sessions that will explore topics including driving inclusion through ESG initiatives, recruiting, developing, and retaining diverse talent, methods to benchmarking DEI initiative success, and more!

Join us for this inspiring event that will help you gain a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding DEI and provide you with the tools to make a real difference. Together, we can drive meaningful change and promote a culture of inclusivity and belonging that goes beyond metrics within the legal industry.
