Join us for a conversation led by Burford Co-COO and founder of The Equity Project Aviva Will as she speaks with leading in-house and law firm lawyers about how companies and firms can take meaningful steps to improve diversity in the leadership of high-stakes commercial litigation and arbitration.  

During the webcast, participants will gain insights into:  

  • Innovative diversity strategies that are driving substantial transformation  

  • The role of companies in advocating for diversity with law firms 

  • The effectiveness of economic incentives like The Equity Project in expediting the rate of progress
