Banner Witcoff attorney Mercedes Meyer will participate as a panelist in the Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) webinar, titled “Introduction to the Myth of the Meritocracy in the Legal Profession,” on Thursday, November 3 from 1-2 pm ET.
During the webinar, panelists will discuss the basics of the myth of meritocracy and how it impacts the legal profession and its long-term D&I consequences. Traditional merit-based hiring practices exclude candidates that could not afford, or get admitted to, a top-tier law school or do not have the same backgrounds as decision-makers in law firms and corporate legal departments. The panel intends to provide practical steps to raise awareness of and address the myth of meritocracy.
