Anybody else wish you could filter attorneys at a firm by race? Or even just a blanket “diversity” filter? I need a quick & easy way to see how diverse a firm is!

No because every firm lies and most of the numbers will be cis white women/ cis white gay men.

Another point. The goal needs to be diverse equity partners. Most firms conceal who has equity and who doesn’t. I know the goal is to start with diverse associates, but that’s not enough. Also, firms can satisfy Mansfield criteria through white women, so programs like that are not enough either.

If I recall correctly, Shook has/had this feature

If you are a candidate, you should be able to ask the firm'd diversity manager. My firm has this feature internally (for staffing matters), so I'm assuming most big firms have an ability to track. Ours is based on how folks self-identity.

I would really, really dislike if someone could sort me by race.

It's really pathetic to see guys getting desperate on this bowl and due to such guys all of us get labelled creeps. I can understand you guys are not getting any due to the skewed gender ratio but please maintain some dignity. I am sure if the gender ratio was skewed in reverse then women won't be behaving in such a desperate manner and would rather stay single. My request to all guys is please have some self respect because this desperation won't lead you anywhere

I have a bit of a dilemma and need some advice. My manager pushes really hard to recruit and hire only minority candidates. While I'm all for diversity, it feels unethical to exclude other qualified candidates just because they are a particular race and gender (white males). I've had to pass over a few candidates that were WAY more qualified and in my opinion would have made a much better fit. I don't know if there's anything I can or should do.
