The Real Business Case:
Diversity and Inclusion is More Than Numbers
Arin N. Reeves
Diversity and inclusion are about people. But, you wouldn’t know that if you listened to the conversations on diversity in the legal profession. You will hear about diversity statistics, diverse hires, the limited availability of diverse talent, and, of course, the almighty “business case” for diversity.
The shift from people to numbers is not only antithetical to diversity and inclusion, but the focus on the “business case,” in my estimation, has interrupted our ability to integrate inclusion as a key component of our professional and ethical responsibilities to each other, to our clients, and to the profession.
