Littler Principal Cindy-Ann Thomas, Mishell Parreno Taylor, Littler Shareholder, and Kiara Harlow, Senior Recruiting Director of The Partners Group, present a multifaceted examination of the diversity and inclusion challenges ahead for the legal industry as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. In this podcast, Cindy-Ann and her guests address the following: • How will the pandemic crisis and associated fiscal fallout affect the legal industry’s efforts in the D&I space? • Why and how are female attorneys and attorneys of color disproportionally affected by the steps that law firms have taken to weather the crisis? • How does the killing of George Floyd and the resulting nationwide social unrest compound the pandemic crisis and further impact the industry’s efforts in D&I? • What can law firms do to protect any gains they have made to advance diversity in the profession since recovering from the last global crisis?
