Successful diversity and inclusion initiatives are far more complex than merely generating a list of general objectives – in many cases it requires a dedication to building increased equity, diversity, and inclusion into your company’s DNA and operating behaviors. As many in the life sciences industry have seen however, this is not always as simple as it sounds, and an added challenge comes in not just trying to recruit strong, diverse female talent – but in retaining them. Join this panel in a discussion of what D&I initiatives are currently working to yield lasting effects, and strategies for recruiting, developing and retaining diverse female attorneys both in house and in law firms. Let your voice be heard in this unique “open floor” session, designed to give attendees an opportunity to come on camera and add to the dialogue.
