January 2019: Open letter from US GC to law firms on Diversity

Last January, Michelle Fang, Chief Legal Officer (CLO) at Turo, initiated a call to action letter signed by more than 170 US general counsel, marking the latest effort by GCs to influence the level of diversity within the law firms they hire.

Michell Fang was interviewed about her initiative by Thomson Reuter’s Natalie Runyon. Read how Fang is creating a longer-term impact.

This American initiative was followed by a similar GC initiative in the UK in March 2019. See here

With the EQUAL in LEGAL Statement we hope to promote D&I within the global legal community and exchange knowledge and work together on this change so that we can become a more diverse and inclusive industry.
