Companies are innovating at breakneck speed. How can legal departments and outside counsel keep up? How do we combine our efforts to innovate in business with legal practices? What role does diversity play in driving innovation? This session will consider the tools, processes and workflows our panel of legal professionals have employed to foster in-house creativity and innovation and the role that diversity has played in expanding the universe of ideas and perspectives in the legal environment. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn what has and hasn’t worked from seasoned in-house veterans who are guiding law departments to a more level playing field.
