Diversity Fatigue Sucks - Best Practices for Sustaining Fresh & Relevant Inclusion Programs   Speaker Dionne M King 

Diversity fatigue comes at different stages in our careers and will continue to grow unless law firms and organizations take a more strategic approach. In this engaging session, Dionne King will share best practices gathered from her work with numerous industries. Participants will learn how to address diversity the way they address other business opportunities and challenges—create a strategy, form metrics for accountability, provide development and practice targeted mindfulness. Participants will also learn innovative ways to turn burnout into dynamic diversity and inclusion programs.
At the end of this session, participants will:
· Gain best practices for sustaining and building a more effective diversity and inclusion program.
· Learn how to cultivate a more inclusive environment.
· Find rejuvenation for continuing in their practices and respective diversity fields.


All About Inclusion: A Conversation With Hiring Managers in Private Practice and Corporate In-House Departments 
Panelists are Anne Lee Benedict, Britton Nohe-Braun, Andrew Unthank and Ryan B. Whitacre 

As others have pointed out, the legal profession is diverse. (2018 ABA stats show 30'% minority enrollment in  laws schools, for example.) What still lags, however, is diversity at the highest ranks -- managing or equity partner, chief legal or compliance officer, judge or justice. Led by a seasoned executive recruiter, this panel will discuss the challenges and offer practical solutions to what is increasingly becoming an *inclusion* issue: How to get a diverse entry-level to stick around and climb to the highest levels of the profession.

At the end of this session, participants will:

  • Understand that while diversity gets the attention, inclusion is the heart of the matter. Employers cannot simply hire and call it "job done."
  • Obtain practical tools for managers so they can diversify their leadership ranks.
  • Receive insight from the audience and panel about their personal experience, including how the panelists got to their leadership posts.
