Diverse and Inclusive Trial Teams | They Simply Work Better Together

Research shows that diverse and inclusive teams are more thoughtful, strategic, careful, and innovative. They are smarter. However, the urge to choose colleagues that look like you and have had the same kinds of experiences is immediate and, frankly, consistent with human nature. We are most comfortable with what we are used to, and in most businesses (especially law firms), we have historically been most comfortable with, and most used to seeing, white men in positions of leadership. The benefits of a diverse and inclusive team, however, unquestionably outweigh any initial discomfort.

To achieve the benefits of a diverse trial or litigation team, not only diversity but fostering a genuine sense of being must be part of an organization’s culture and the way it works. When teams commit to diverse and inclusive leadership and membership, they will have a greater likelihood of success. Our panelists will explore how we can build stronger teams and promote and integrate a culture of inclusivity and belonging. When we feel like we can bring our genuine selves to our work, we perform at our best.
