A Journey from One to All in Legal with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our hosts begin the show with another Sighting of Radical Brilliance, an article in Forbes about one of the most powerful sources of big data your company already owns.

Then, Reem Saffouri, Vice President of Clients Solutions and Success at Lighthouse, joins the podcast to share her personal journey and discuss how individuals can create greater equity and inclusion at work, in their industry, and beyond. Here are some of the key questions they dive into:

  • Although it’s a seemingly simple act, why don’t more people share their personal experiences and why is it so important for DEI efforts? 
  • Hearing about structural challenges to DEI can be intimidating and somewhat demoralizing. But along with sharing personal experiences what can individuals do to champion DEI at their organizations? 
  • There are nuances and specific solutions that work in each industry for improving equity and inclusion. What are you seeing in legal and legal tech that’s moving the needle?
  • As you look to the future, what aspects of DEI are you hoping to impact?
