Partner-led governance | White & Case LLP International Law Firm, Global Law Practice

Partner-led governance

The Diversity Initiative is governed by a Global Diversity Committee comprised of partners from around the world who work in conjunction with regional and local committees in the United States and London. Its focus is to ensure that best practices are implemented in providing appropriate hiring, training and professional opportunities for minority lawyers, and to support innovative paths to achieving total inclusion for all individuals in all spheres.

We are conducting diversity training for our partners on implicit bias. The program, entitled “Inclusive Intelligence in Practice: Understanding and Interrupting Unconscious Biases in Feedback and Evaluation” is presented by Dr. Arin N. Reeves of Nextions LLC and is mandatory globally. Training for all our people is also conducted.
