Overview (Program Summary)

Wisconsin, like many states, has struggled to attract diverse business professionals to work in the state. The legal industry has experienced this struggle along with other Wisconsin-based businesses. Corporate general counsel in Wisconsin have launched an effort to examine this issue, partnering with a large Wisconsin university to collect and evaluate consistent, baseline data from their own legal departments and Milwaukee-based law firms, with a goal of using that information
as a starting point in a collaborative effort to make substantive change.

Our panel will discuss the efforts that have taken place to date and will examine ways that the ACC-Wisconsin members can engage in this effort, including by partnering with their own outside counsel. The ultimate goal is to create pathways for success that can attract and retain diverse legal professionals in rewarding careers in Wisconsin.
