December 8, 2016

Bonnie Mayfield, a member of Dykema’s Litigation and Labor & Employment practices, recently served as a featured speaker at the Defense Research Institute’s Insurance Coverage and Practice Symposium, which took place in New York, New York.

Mayfield’s presentation, titled “Diversity & Inclusion: 7 Best Law Firm Practices,” was given during the Achieving and Supporting Diversity and Inclusion program, which served as an examination of best practices that law firms and insurance companies employ to achieve tangible results in diversity and inclusion, obtain leadership commitment, implement recruitment strategies and mentoring programs, and create a multicultural environment.

In her presentation, Mayfield identified concrete, best practices that lawyers and law firms can use to achieve tangible diversity and inclusion within their lives and organizations. Mayfield also explained implicit bias and microinequities, subtle and often subconscious negative micromessages that display true thoughts, attitudes and values of inclusion and exclusion.
