Widener School of Law, Delaware, will host Dr. Jeff McKinney, president of the Chicago-based Angkor Group, for his talk, “The Business Case for Diversity: Why We Need It, How We Achieve It.” Dr. McKinney’s remarks will focus on the legal profession and why the legal profession should encourage┬ádiversity to enhance overall performance.

Specifically, Dr. McKinney will address the historically underrepresented groups within the legal profession: Hispanics, women, African-Americans, and diversity issues related to race, religion, ethnicity, sex, and sexual orientation. A floor discussion and Q&A will follow the presentation.

The program has been scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, April 16, 2009 at the Barrister’s Club.
