Description: Join Alton B. Harris, partner in Nixon Peabody LLP, for this important program about combatting gender discrimination and increasing gender diversity in the legal profession. Mr. Harris first identifies the subtle and generally unconscious gender stereotypes that are pervasive throughout the legal profession and the biases they foster against women lawyers. He then presents a series of practical, effective steps men and the legal organizations they manage can take to combat these biases and remove the obstacles they create for women to advance in their legal careers on a basis comparable to men.
