It’s now been more than six months since the killing of George Floyd. On this podcast, we hear from diversity leaders at three Am Law 200 law firms: Yusuf Zakir, chief diversity and inclusion officer at Davis Wright Tremaine; Fenimore Fisher, chief diversity and inclusion officer at DLA Piper; and Narges Kakalia, director of diversity, equity and inclusion at Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo. Each guest describes the changes they’ve seen since Floyd’s death in May and how they’re approaching the legal industry’s biggest diversity challenges.
