4. Tackling Obstacles Specific to Diverse Lawyers

4. Tackling Obstacles Specific to Diverse Lawyers This is the fourth episode of our series on the foundations of career development for diverse lawyers. In this episode, we’ll touch upon some of the common roadblocks that diverse lawyers face in their path to professional development and we will also talk about how to address these obstacles. Remember that by anticipating challenges and being prepared, you will be able to take more control over your career path. “A diverse lawyer should look for points of connection with non-diverse leaders.  If you are intentional about doing this, you will likely find some points of affinity that can be the basis of growing that relationship.” Deliberately plan your career to ensure that you get closer to achieving your goals. Be coached by a seasoned female diverse attorney, plan and achieve your professional goals. Visit Legally Balanced.
