Paul Hastings recently partnered with GC Magazine and The Legal 500 to produce the GC Diversity and Inclusion Report USA 2017 -- an in-depth examination of the perspectives and innovative actions of the in-house legal community. The report was launched in February and features in-depth interviews from 20+ general counsels and senior executives, as well as Paul Hastings people.
Critical topics explored in the report include:
- The fundamental importance of strategic, top level buy-in to diversity and inclusion, which leads to cultural change
- The importance of mentoring and sponsorship in successful progression
- Flexible working as one of the most successful tactics in promoting a diverse and inclusive culture
- The need to think differently and look in different places to develop the pipeline for diverse candidates
