It is an interesting time for law firms committed to diversity and inclusion.  While they continue to seek ways to promote diversity and inclusion, and to recruit, retain, and promote lawyers who are diverse to partnership, the economic downturn forced many to suffer layoffs and scaled-back diversity and inclusion efforts.  In such an environment, it has become crucial for law firms to consider internal infrastructure and communication policies, protocols and systems that may influence the effectiveness of their ongoing diversity and inclusion efforts.
