Diversity: The shape of things to come

Predicting the future is always dangerous. But one prediction can be made with a degree of certainty: the more diverse that law firms become, the less their commitment to diversity will need to be analysed and discussed.

For now, most firms still have a great deal to do – even those which are ranked highly by the ever-larger assortment of data. Diversity will, therefore, continue to make news and command attention. As the definition of diversity continues to expand, DEI is increasingly being put under the broader ESG (environment, social, and corporate governance) umbrella. Businesses are increasingly incorporating DEI within sustainability and specifically within the social and governance aspects of ESG in their business strategy, rather than as stand-alone programs.
