Firms usually say how important diversity is to them and they actively look for diverse candidates. However, when you look through these firms, you hardly see any minorities. Are firms just saying they care about diversity without really taking the time to actively look for promising miniority candidates? Does your firm look past the top of a class if the candidate is a minority and can bring a fresh perspective to the table?
Diversity is a tough issue for all firms, especially in the middle market. We will take the time the time to look for promising minority candidates and consider other factors other than class rank.
