I can tell that they are trying to, but it's a struggle for people to let go of old ways of thinking. It doesn't seem to be as much of a problem for younger folks, but the more seasoned ones set the tone sometimes. I have hope for the future, but it feels like we're still walking the line

The leaders in my firm are pretty young so they're more progressive than the average law partners. It's very refreshing and comforting as I didn't know what to expect coming into law as a young and black woman.

Our firm mostly consists of relatively young professionals, so thankfully they're more on the open-minded side. I didn't even expect them to be so progressive when I first started here. I'm so glad I'm surrounded by them.

Somehow. But it's definitely getting there. We've had trainings and talks regarding it.

I can say that they do for the most part. At least I can see a conscious effort on this one.

Arkansas lawyers: I’m considering making a move to Little Rock and have entered very informal discussions with Mitchell Williams Law Firm, Rose Law Firm and Friday. Does anyone have any insight on culture? I don’t want to move to a job where no one really talks to each other unless it’s billable. I did enough of that. Also, some of these firms don’t seem to have much in terms of LGBT/minority initiatives so it makes me hesitant.

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.

Hi all! Newly diagnosed last month. Started Adderall and was only able to fill one 2 week prescription before it became impossible to get I my area of Tampa, FL. Dr switched me to Ritalin but I don't have much of a benefit from it at all compared to Adderall.

Pharmacies are saying it may be another couple of months before they expect adderall to be back. Anyone else having this issue? Was on Adderall 10mg twice daily. Now on Ritalin 10mg twice daily. I just don't have the same level of focus!

Hi, everyone! I’ve been licensed since Feb 2020. My first job was with the State & I stayed there like 1.5 years before leaving (I gained many skills). I know my biggest mistake was leaving without having something lined up. So BASICALLY I’ve been unemployed since Jan 2021. I was employed by two firms but it didn’t work. I guess I didn’t meet their “expectations”—they expected me to learn everything within a week. ATP, I’m just getting VERY discouraged. Having interviews with no response etc.

For context, it was used in a positive statement "that's the way boy!" but it still kind of made me feel a way.
