Practical Guide to Diversity & Inclusion

IPO’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee is proud to share Version 3.0 of the Practical Guide to Diversity & Inclusion in the Legal Profession.  This Guide has been designed to be used to understand and improve Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) of legal professionals – especially lawyers – in law firms and corporate legal departments.  This Guide can be used for presentations and trainings to legal teams in law firms or corporate legal departments.  It can also be used for individual education and reference.

This Guide comprises three main sections, which a user can work through to build knowledge and understanding.
