Those are the unfortunate conclusions of a new study released by the ABA.
“Of women attorneys of color, 44 percent reported being passed over for desirable assignments, compared with 39 percent of white women, 25 percent of men of color and only 2 percent of white men. (The study covered law firms of 25 lawyers or more; more than 1,000 lawyers responded to the online questionnaire.)”
Further evidence that the only way for things to change is for law firms to make an affirmative commitment to addressing these statistics.
