the people are out there. the question is are you looking in the right place. we spend a lot of effort on recruiting at tier the one schools....cast the net a bit wider. the other piece of the puzzle is to take better care of the diversity you have.

Some of it is a numbers game. We have initiatives to try and increase diversity in hiring, but as an interviewer, the number of people we are able to bring in is still quite low (just not that many candidates). Most people that start as a staff don’t make it to leadership, so if you start with a small number and whittle down to a smaller number, it doesn’t look as diverse. Some of it has to start with encouraging more minorities to choose degree paths that filter into our firms.
