Iris Bohnet – Gender Equality By Design

Women comprise 50% of law students but only 22% of law firm partners. Calls to “lean in” and understand our own biases may not be enough to close the gender gap in leadership. What can be done at the institutional level to accelerate change?

Join Professor Iris Bohnet, behavioral economist at the Harvard Kennedy School and author of the path-breaking book, What Works: Gender Equality By Design, to explore practical, research-based solutions that can move the needle. From revamping recruitment processes to creating counter-stereotypical role models, learn what works to promote gender equality from the classroom to the boardroom.

This event is part of the Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging speaker series, and is sponsored by Cravath, Swaine & Moore; Davis Polk & Wardwell; Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson; Kirkland & Ellis; Latham & Watkins; Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison; and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. After the main event, please join us for a post-event reception exclusively sponsored by Paul, Weiss.
