Consultation for Law Firms
The attrition of talented women from law firms continues to create a significant “brain drain” as well as enormous financial cost. Research consistently indicates that women DO NOT leave their firms due to the "pull" of home. Rather, women feel pushed out by their firms’ failures to provide equitable opportunities for them to succeed. Without efforts to level the playing field, firms fail to reap the benefits of their investments in hiring and training the gifted women they recruited to their firms.
In addition, the rankings in widely read industry publications can bring uncomfortable attention to firms that have had difficulty retaining women lawyers. Firms are increasingly being asked by clients to account for the attrition of women attorneys and their absence from leadership ranks.
The bottom-line benefits to businesses with a significant presence of women among their leadership ranks have been repeatedly documented. Firms failing to retain and advance women will not reap these rewards.
