About Diversity Lab
Diversity Lab is an incubator for creative and innovative solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in law. Experimental ideas are created through our Hackathons and piloted in collaboration with more than 60 top law firms and legal departments across the country. Diversity Lab leverages data, behavioral science, design thinking, and technology to further develop and test new ideas and research, measure the results, and share the lessons learned.
Our inaugural project – the OnRamp Fellowship – is now the largest global re-entry program for lawyers returning to the profession after an extended career hiatus. To inspire others to develop and experiment with innovative initiatives such as OnRamp, we launched the Women in Law Hackathon in 2016, and the Diversity in Law Hackathon series in 2018. These first-of-their-kind "Shark Tank" style pitch competitions in law brought together high-level law firm partners, legal department leaders, talent experts, and law students in small teams working together to generate ideas to boost diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. Diversity Lab is now developing more than 10 of the Hackathon ideas, all of which rely on data to determine the baseline, measure progress, and evaluate the outcomes.
About the Role
In the Director role, you will advance our company’s and clients’ (i.e., law firms and legal departments) efforts to boost diversity and inclusion by teaming up with our CEO, Managing Director of Research & Knowledge Sharing, and Data Scientists to manage data and analytics projects related to sourcing and hiring talented lawyers, integration, work allocation, feedback, performance reviews, engagement and satisfaction, social and professional networks, pay equity, and inclusion activities at the individual and organizational level. You will also have the opportunity to work with the Diversity Lab team to create and manage the D&I Dash, the winning idea from the Spring 2018 Diversity in Law Hackathon, which will eventually become the largest and most valuable resource and dashboard for the legal community to access and share diversity and inclusion data and best practices.
This role is a full-time, remote work opportunity. You will be asked to travel, likely 6-8 times per year.
The Skills Needed to Be Effective in This Role
No one is perfect, so we don’t expect one human to embody of all these skills. But if you have some of these key skills and are willing to learn, we encourage you to apply.
