Women Lawyers Take a Look at Gender Bias and Opportunity
Following this year's Equal Pay Day, Partner Josh Roberts joined a panel discussion which focused on gender bias and the means to equality in the legal profession. The panel, which brought together leaders from some of the area's biggest firms, took place on April 12 and was presented by the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association.
Holland & Knight proactively staffs cases with diverse teams, Mr. Roberts said. "We want to ensure that female associates are involved in cases at the highest level."
He also pointed out, “Part of solving the problem is recognizing it. Hopefully, this can be the beginning of change in Jacksonville."
