    Join us for a fabulous and forward-thinking discussion, where you will learn tips and techniques for incorporating diversity into your everyday work. 

    You can bring diversity to the forefront of corporate legal minds through the use of technology and sourcing processes that have built-in diversity enablers. 

    Two legal industry entrepreneurs will share their stories and insights on what they are doing differently to move the diversity needle in legal. 

    CINDY TOWERS (President and CEO of JURISolutions) will share insights on how she has built her business with diversity as a key attribute of her success. JURISolutions is a diverse legal staffing and services company, that has made firm commitment to inclusion of diverse-owned suppliers in all goods and services RFPs.

    JIM DELKOUSIS (Founder and CEO of Persuit) will share how Persuit is working with the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) as an enabler for including diverse firms in your RFPs. Jim will illustrate how easy it is to bring supplier diversity values into your supply chain at the first step of your bid process. Persuit is an innovative legal eSourcing technology tool that is changing the way corporations engage law firms.
