Diversity and inclusion in the legal sector -- increasingly, it’s a topic that’s being discussed and addressed by legal leaders, law schools, news media, and other sources.
"For too long a wall of uniformity has defined the legal profession. A wall that limits entry and advancement based on race, ethnicity, color, culture, gender, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, geography and age . . . . A wall that has left the legal profession an anachronism in an increasingly diverse society."
-- Excerpt from homepage of the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession

With knowledge and expertise on the impact that changing global attitudes and the multicultural workforce in the U.S. are having on business, Mikos partners with clients to develop diversity and inclusion practices to enhance organizational effectiveness and business success.
