Karen and Steve are joined by Dr. Meera Deo, author of "Unequal Profession: Race and Gender in Legal Academia," for a wide-ranging discussion about diversity in the legal academy (and the legal profession writ large), what we're doing very wrong, and some potential (and hopefully uncontroversial) areas for reform, along with some of the unique challenges of parenting during COVID.
Before chatting with Meera, Karen and Steve reflect a bit on their own experiences trying to improve the diversity of their workplaces, some of the obstacles they've faced, and some of the (significant) work still left to be done.
