The DRI Diversity and Inclusion Committee invites you to its 11th annual Diversity for Success Seminar and Expo. This year’s seminar will provide an assessment of the importance of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. The Diversity for Success Seminar will provide an in-depth look at corporate and national diversity and inclusion initiatives at the forefront of change. Watch real pitches from two different attorneys and listen to feedback from general counsel on how to interview as outside counsel. Learn about the importance of having diversity in the defense of lawsuits and why diverse legal teams get better results. Friday’s Diversity Expo provides DRI member lawyers and their firms with an opportunity to interview with corporations that value diversity and have made a serious commitment to diversify their outside counsel. Please be sure to complete the separate Diversity Expo Law Firm Interview Application to participate in the Diversity Expo. You must be a DRI member to participate in the expo; please go to dri.org and submit a membership application if you are not already a member. Interviews are preselected and are not guaranteed. See page 6 for information on the Diversity Expo Law Firm Application, which is due on May 8, 2016.
