Description


Join us for our next meeting of the InterLaw Diversity Forum’s Race & Ethnicity (BAME) Network where our topic will be: "A view from in-house: Employer best practice for recruitment, retention, and advancement of BAME talent".

Over the past several years, the numbers of BAME individuals entering the legal profession has almost doubled. Despite this, when looking at the pipeline there is still a high level of attrition for BAME lawyers beyond junior levels. These issues are not just present in law firms, but also are a key focus of in-house legal employers.

To address these issues and redress the imbalance of BAME professionals at mid- and senior levels of the profession we must look beyond entry-level recruitment and focus on the retention and promotion of BAME talent, as well as on our lateral recruitment efforts.

We have put together a panel of experts to share best practice, as well as the client perspective on BAME talent.


Speakers:

  • Patti Kachidza, Head of Litigation, M&G Prudential
  • Asker Saeed, Director of Diversity & Inclusion, Fried Frank (former in-house counsel at Pratt & Whitney)
  • Daniel Winterfeldt, Founder & Chair, InterLaw Diversity Forum (moderator).
