Shahzad Qadri spoke at the Initiative for Diversity Summit on May 22 in Seattle, Washington.
The Summit was hosted by Chief Justice Barbara Madsen with the Washington State Supreme Court, Chair of the Intiative for Diversity, General Counsel Brad Smith with Microsoft, and other prominent leaders in the legal community including Ms. Lucy Helm, General Counsel for Starbucks Corporation.
This Summit provided firms with resources to develop a successful diversity plan that will help them create a climate that encourages, supports and increases diversity in the workplace. Firms received specific recruiting and retention strategies and tools that have been proven effective in creating a diverse workforce. They also learn what has and has not worked in environments similar to their own.
