Andie Kramer, partner at McDermott Will & Emery, and Alton B. Harris, partner (retired) at Nixon Peabody LLP, discuss the nature and extent of the achievement disparity between female and other minority lawyers and white male lawyers. They also review why and how stereotypes and the biases that flow from them cause this disparity by preventing women and minorities from advancing in their legal careers as far and as fast as men. They then provide women, men, and organizations with specific insights and communication techniques they can use to avoid or overcome these often subtle and unconscious biases. The program includes a discussion of the relevance of ABAs Model Rule 8.4(g) and various ABA Resolutions.
