Encouraging Diversity in Outside Counsel

Rick Palmore, executive vice president, general counsel, and chief compliance and risk management officer of General Mills, wrote the "Call to Action" in 2004, which galvanized more than 200 CLOs of corporations to commit to promoting diversity in legal departments, as well as in the law firms that corporations engage.

For the in-house legal departments that have yet to commit to the Call to Action or those that only have a diversity policy, it is not too late to start the dialogue with outside counsel.
