Progress on diversity and inclusion at major law firms has failed to advance into the partnership ranks, largely because many career-enhancing opportunities, such as origination credit and a firm’s non-billable activities, aren’t meaningfully tracked, according to a study by legal diversity organizations Diversity Lab and ChIP.
The study’s results, included in The Inclusion Blueprint, found that pay equity, origination credit, non-billable activities and first-chair responsibilities have yet to be scrutinized and tracked at the majority of firms. While there has been progress, it also found that women and minority attorneys have not yet broken into the equity partner ranks at meaningful levels.
