How to Increase Diversity in the Legal Profession – Terry Franklin Hosts ACTEC Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity Video
What can we do to increase diversity in the law and trust and estate profession? Partner Terry Franklin hosted The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) video “How to Increase Diversity in the Legal Profession” with a panel of attorneys who offered practical recommendations that law firms and lawyers can take to diversify staff and the profession. The panel examined steps for creating a pipeline program, suggested ideas for how to improve recruitment and retention, described the difference between serving as a mentor and serving as a sponsor, and more.
The video series was created as a project of ACTEC’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity Committee, funded by The ACTEC Foundation, and will continue throughout 2021 featuring new guests and topics each month.
