Coast to Coast Internet Radio Discusses Diversity In The Law
Coast to Coast internet radio, with my co-host Robert Ambrogi, is back this week with a show on diversity. Back in 1999, the Chief Legal Officers of 500 large corporations agreed to push their outside legal firms into hiring more minorities and women. Has their promise been kept? Have law firms diversified their staff?
Coast to Coast tackles this topic with two guests who give us an in-depth analysis. We have as our first guest, Veta Richardson, the Executive Director for the Minority Corporate Counsel Association. The MCCA was founded in 1997, and its mission is to push the expanded hiring, retention and promotion of minority attorneys.
Our second guest, Attorney Ron Jordan, the founding Principal of Carter-White & Shaw. Ron has more than thirteen years of experience in attorney placement and law firm mergers and acquisitions. During his career, he has successfully placed many law firm partners and facilitated mergers with major law firms. You won't want to miss these experts.
