Description: Andie Kramer, partner at McDermott Will & Emery, and Alton B. Harris, partner at Nixon Peabody LLP, discuss how male lawyers can eliminate gender discrimination and increase gender diversity in the legal profession. Topics include: discussion of the lack of diversity at senior levels in the legal profession and its gender achievement gap; identification of the biases and stereotypes that cause the gender achievement gap and the culture it fosters that can lead to actual and potential sexual harassment and misconduct; a review of the ABA Mission Statement, ABA Model Rule 8.4(g), and Resolution 302 of the ABA House of Delegates (February 2018); and suggested practical, effective steps men and the legal organizations they control can take to increase diversity and avoid inappropriate sexual conduct in the #MeToo and #TimesUp era.
