Immersive Leadership Experiences
What if you could literally walk in another person’s shoes? Stanford Virtual Human Interaction Lab and Columbia University Research Lab have created an experience that examines racism via virtual reality. They have created 1000 Cut Journey, an immersive virtual reality experience that allows you to walk in the shoes of Michael Sterling, a Black male, and encounter racism first-hand, as a young child, an adolescent, and a young adult. Understanding the social realities of racism is critical to promoting effective and collective social action.
The Equity Track Program was developed to address the lack of diversity within the equity partnership levels at majority law firms as reported by our Law Firm Diversity Survey. It is a twelve-month program that selects ten diverse income partners at major law firms. It is designed to achieve three goals: identify, develop and promote diverse partners to achieve and maintain equity status within their firms.
