    Over the past three decades, Asian Americans have been the fastest growing group in the legal profession.  Yet, despite advances in recruitment, Asian Americans (and other minority groups) continue to be under-represented in partnership and leadership ranks, more so for women than men.  Does a diverse workforce directly or indirectly impact the bottom line?  What accounts for these disparities in advancement and promotion?  And why should all that matter to managing partners and executive decision-makers whose focus is on best business practices? 

     

    Explore these issues with our distinguished panel of experts – pioneers who have blazed trails of their own -- in a lively, frank, and interactive discussion.
