Take the Diversity & Inclusion "Measure of Success” Survey!
The Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession ("IILP”) and the Association of Legal Administrators recently launched the "Measure of Success” study in order to better understand the following:
What are the legal profession’s ultimate diversity and inclusion goals?
Are there short-term diversity and inclusion goals? What might they be?
When we talk about diversity and inclusion, do we all mean the same thing?
Do we value some kinds of diversity more than others? Should we?
What kinds of strategies should be implemented to meet our diversity and inclusion goals?
By understanding the differences in how members of the legal community define and perceive diversity & inclusion, the legal profession will be better able to address those differences and develop clearer definitions around which to set goals. Without clear consensus and a common understanding among all participants of the goals, we cannot measure progress. And as we all know, if something is not measured it will not get done.
CMCP encourages all of our members & friends in the legal community to participate in this critical national diversity & inclusion study. It is important that EVERYONE’s opinions be included. So take the survey yourself, and then encourage your friends and colleagues – even those not typically involved in diversity efforts – to do the same.
