Over 20 years ago, BASF began to study diversity in the legal profession. As BASF prepares for the 2015 Goals & Timetables report, BASF’s Equality Committee brought together thought leaders in the Bay Area to have an honest dialogue, go beyond the numbers and discuss how old approaches have impeded success in the advancement of diversity in the legal profession.
The November 2012 summit included two panels and seven working group discussions; and the afternoon concluded with the 2012 Minority Bar Coalition Unity Awards Reception. The two panels can be viewed on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/55566192 and http://vimeo.com/55628816.
In 2010, BASF’s Bottom Line Partnership Task Force interviewed 85 partners of color, in-house counsel and managing partners in San Francisco, in order to study the state of diversity in our legal community. View the Bottom Line Partnership Task Force Report.
On October 28, 2005, BASF hosted an all-day conference on new approaches to diversifying the legal profession and improving retention and promotion strategies.
