Thank you for leading this call. Are Orly's toolkits available to be shared?
@keeva find me on LinkedIn, happy to share my toolkit
Will do - thank you!
Wow - thank you, Ericka! That was so helpful.
D&I is thought of as a nice to have, not a necessity.
Alison - we have to demand it be a necessity!
Rory, I’m engaging with a medium sized law firm on d&i. I’m not certain that they will be moved by justice. I hope they will be moved by the business case. I agree with you re: pressure and the moral centre. But, you know law firms….. How can I be influential? How do I engage persuasively?
I think you have to get to a WHY reason with the managing partner that is personal, almost selfish. To get them to buy into D&I on its own won’t get you very far.
It makes it inclusive without pressure to have to assume the identity. Nice!
Rory, your analogies are pure gold
I love Rory’s analogy. TY!!
The Pomegranate Principle - drop the mic!
Great job Rory!

This is for anyone on the panel. I work on d&i with smaller private companies. Is the approach different for large publicly held corporations than for smaller privately held companies?
I think the bus boycott was 381 days!

Agree with Elicia. We need to seize the opportunity and sacrifice for the long-term!

Another great event LLR, THANK YOU!!
This was helpful indeed! We have work to do and this helps us prepare. Great Job Tangela and to the Speakers.
Thank you all for hosting this forum. In the way were asking for others to be open-minded we too should be open and patient with those who are allies and perhaps (on -the-fence).400 years is a long time so we've been patient but at the same time we wouldn't be here without our allies we have to be mindful of that!
Many many thanks to the Panel and Lisa. So many wonderful learnings.
This has been awesome... definitely walking away with concrete strategies that I can apply in my role as an educator. I appreciate the experiences and insights of the panelist... Thank you Tangela for moderating such a powerful discussion.
Thank you so much LLR, panelists, and everyone for another incredible event!!
