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 diversity 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.
