Why do so few diverse and underrepresented candidates make it to equity partnership in Big Law or the C-suite of major corporations? Director Jennifer Jones joins other women law leaders for the panel "The Meritocracy Myth: Pipeline Development and Advancement for Diverse Candidates" at the Driving Diversity in Law and Leadership Summit.

This panel will explore:

• The meritocracy myth and why it can’t be relied on
• Why organizations should care about retaining and advancing women and people of color
• Making pay parity a top priority and strategies to achieve that goal

This annual event is dedicated to exploring and brainstorming solutions to issues within the legal sector by creating a platform for leaders and stakeholders to exchange ideas, network, and learn latest trends and best practices to driving diversity.
