The Case of the Missing Black Associates

February 13, 2019,5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Sessions and CA MCLE Credit:


Black associates – please help our research by completing this brief anonymous survey.

This unique program will address the distressingly high number of minority attorneys who exit law firms early in their careers. It will explore potential solutions, with a specific focus on the challenges and opportunities for increasing retention of Black associates. The program will include research data and anecdotal information on the experience of Black associates, and hackathon-style break out groups exploring specific areas for improvement in how associates are developed, supported and advanced. The substantive program will be followed by a networking reception.

Details: 1.25 hours of CA MCLE Recognition and Elimination of Bias Credit

Registration check-in – 5:30-6:00pm
Program Begins – 6:00pm
