Legal departments participating in the Diversity Dividends Collective will participate in an annual diversity data collection process – supported by Diversity Lab – that sets diversity goals for external consultants, collects timekeeper and diversity data for the company, and rewards compliance. Recent exemplary initiatives, such as HP`s Diversity and Inclusion initiative for law firms, have resulted in increasingly diverse teams, proving that this approach leads to positive results.

The successful candidate will report to the Chief Legal Officer and ensure that organizational legal issues are handled properly and effectively and that relevant and relevant stakeholders are exchanged, advised and guided appropriately. Our hope is to create and maintain a fair and inclusive legal profession. There are many good reasons for metric-based goals, but there are two main impulses motivating MTN.
To exercise their collective power, many legal departments in MTN`s constitution will require their potential and current external law firms to systematically and progressively staff businesses with various teams and experienced lawyers. Other legal services are also invited to join. To make greater progress, four law firms, 25+ general counsel and a dozen community leaders are taking a different approach. They are collaborating through MTN to create the first experimental “lab” of its kind, where bold new approaches will be developed over five years in law firms to serve as a model for transformative learning and change in the legal profession and beyond. Several of the founding directors of the General Counsel and Legal Department help monitor and drive MTN`s progress by serving on the Advisory Board and as collective project leaders. To provide quick and easy access to partners who have identified themselves as part of a historically underrepresented population in MTN law firms, the Access to Opportunities Collective created the MTN Diverse Partners Directory. This app will help in-house lawyers, press representatives, conference organizers and others increase the visibility of different lawyers and improve access to important opportunities. Diversity Lab will track the use of this app to determine if such a tool could measurably improve access to various lawyers in the legal sector and if it could be extended to lawyers outside the MTN network. With the support of MTN`s four law firms – Eversheds Sutherland, Nixon Peabody, Orrick and Stoel Rives – and 25+ founding legal departments, we hosted a 10-week 1L virtual summer learning and networking forum for summer 2020 and a 6-week program for summer 2021.
With over 300 participating students and 200 network lawyers, we have expanded the program to offer additional sessions to 2L students in fall 2020 and spring 2021.

The Move the Needle Fund (“MTN”) is the first joint effort developed and funded by Diversity Lab and four pioneering $5 million law firms to test innovative initiatives to create a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. In parallel, they will also experiment and measure the impact of many of MTN`s innovative efforts in their own legal departments and with their current external lawyers. General Counsel work with MTN firms to achieve their goals and also test some of the innovative initiatives with their current legal departments and external advisors.
