Attaining more diversity in law firms is a much-talked about goal. But it is much more than doing something because it is right and positive for society. Today diversity is an important business goal for several reasons. Corporate clients are very interested in being represented by a diverse legal team. We have learned that teams with more diverse members can come up with more creative approaches and solutions to problems. John “The Purple Coach” Mitchell is John Mitchellmanaging director of KM Advisors, LLC in Chicago. He spends his days advising law firm leaders about these issues and others. On our podcast Attaining Law Firm Diversity, he discusses the difference between diversity and inclusion, diversity fatigue, and factors within the industry that might hinder the advancement of diverse lawyers. While this subject matter veers away from our usual technology focus, John is a very informative and engaging speaker on this most significant topic.
