October 12, 2022

Panelist, Driving Diversity in Law & Leadership - Centerforce Diversity in Law Series

Downey Brand is pleased to support and participate in the upcoming Driving Diversity in Law & Leadership Summit on October 12, in San Francisco. Part of The Diversity in Law Series, this event brings together diverse in-house counsel from the Greater San Francisco Area to explore how leadership is evolving to meet the challenges of the post-pandemic world.

Downey Brand attorney Hina Gupta will be participating in the panel “Cultivating Allies & Change Agents” – just one of several DEI presentations focused on turning awareness into action and inspiring change.

Panel Overview

Because creating and maintaining a diverse workforce is no longer a gesture of goodwill, but essential to financial growth, finding ways to foster diversity in the workplace is imperative. This requires collaboration across disciplinary and organizational boundaries to tackle discriminatory practices and promote a true culture of inclusion. In order to be successful, it means getting buy-in from the dominant group as well. This is where leadership is most needed: in helping today’s dominant group embrace tomorrow’s reality.

This panel will explore:

  • Identifying allies, advocates, and co-conspirators
  • Using privilege for the greater good—Becoming an ally
  • Developing an engagement strategy
