Debbie expertly surveys the creative alternatives to traditional law firm billing, hiring and retention policies that will eventually put some firms -- and the legal departments that use them -- at a competitive advantage. . . ."

TOPIC: In-House Men as Diversity Allies.

DESCRIPTION: While men still dominate the majority of the power circles in-house, it is important that they understand the value of promoting diverse talent both inside their companies and at the legal service providers with whom they work. At this event, with a distinguished in-house panel, we will explore how to engage male leaders to assume the role of diversity allies. We will discuss how in-house lawyers can best use their unique position to inspire change at law firms and what both majority and minority firms can do to set and meet diversity benchmarks. We will also address the growing impact of ABA Resolution 113, which urges corporate clients to direct a greater percentage of the legal services they purchase to law firms that show real progress on diversity. Through personal anecdotes and candid conversation, attendees will leave the session inspired to elevate both the goals and the means to achieve greater parity and opportunity in the legal workplace.

PANELISTS:
Damien Atkins, General Counsel, Panasonic Corporation of North America
Alan Bryan, Senior Associate General Counsel - Legal Operations and Outside Counsel Management, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
Mark Roellig, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, MassMutual
