Trial attorney and litigator Colleen O’Brien will moderate a panel discussion on June 17, 2021 for Defense Research Institute (DRI) on ways that in-house lawyers/corporations and law firms can be better allies to traditionally underrepresented professionals.

There has been a lot of talk about diversity and helping underrepresented people to feel included enough to bring their true selves to work without fear of bias, judgment, or discrimination. But what does it take to create that environment? This panel—Earning the Right to be Called an Ally—will discuss ways organizations can provide institutional support for their employees. It will also discuss what individuals can do to show up in ways to empower their colleagues.
