Clients want law firms to increase diversity on matter teams. One reason is to help them benefit from the creativity and innovation diverse teams can generate. We know from research that one of the most important ways to realize the full benefits of diversity and mitigate bias is through inclusive interaction across differences. For leaders in law firms, including mid-level and senior associate emerging leaders, building capabilities for interacting across differences in inclusive ways, and for facilitating inclusive interactions among people across differences in group settings, including on matter teams, is becoming increasingly important for professional development and for delivering value to clients.

The following are the program’s four areas of focus:
  • Interact to Include: Insight into the power of inclusive interaction to mitigate bias.
  • Interact to Learn: The power of a learning mindset to elevate the quality of interactions across differences, and to help realize the full benefits of the broad diversity across a law firm.
  • Interact with Insight: How actively considering experiences from different perspectives can mitigate bias and help increase the value of legal services delivered to clients.
  • Interact by Design: How to design meetings, matter teams, and other group interactions for inclusive input, discussion, and dissent.
