DWLA is proud to present the following whitepaper on Bridging the Gap:  Practical Resources and Suggestions for Promoting and Retaining Female Attorneys in the Legal Profession

  • Explores the improvements that have been made with respect to women’s participation in the law, analyzes problems that continue to affect diversity initiatives, and suggests possible ways to improve those diversity initiatives
  • Proposes that diversity is not only appropriate for its own sake, but because diversity on deal and trial teams expands business opportunities for law firms, and ensures that law firms get a worthwhile return in their investment in recruiting and training of women lawyers
  • Analysis of corporate diversity initiatives that are influencing how law firms staff their cases as well as recruit and retain women lawyers
  • Explores current trends in women’s participation in law practice
  • Reasons why the data has not shown marked improvement in women’s participation in law practice
