M.A.P. (MCCA ADVISORY PRACTICE)

OUR CHALLENGE

The lack of scientifically objective benchmarks, strategies, and training to measure the effectiveness of diversity policies and practice at law firms and legal departments continues to perpetuate myths, unsubstantiated assumptions, and ineffective practices that hurt our ability to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession.

OUR SOLUTION

Provide a scientifically grounded suite of assessment tools, leadership development training, and strategic services that empower in-house legal departments and law firms on their journey to establishing and implementing an effective and sustainable DEI program.
