Mira: How to write an employer-friendly guide to diversity in hiring

Diversity2_2 I have to hand it to Edgardo Ramos and Lynn Anne Baronas, who recently penned a very diplomatic article on pursuing diversity in hiring at law firms. Hat-tip to Monica Bay, who leads with this fantastic graphic and the headline, "Four Steps to Diversity" as she links to the piece.

It's going to get them business, of that I am sure. Beginning with the risk of losing a client like Wal-Mart (which recently bounced a firm for its oh-so-white ways), the duo offers gentle but specific hiring advice that, to the careful reader, distills a real to-do list rather than managerial platitudes. What they don't do is invest any time on case studies or quotes (bitter, angry, evocative or sad) from women and/or racial minorities who are fed up with not being hired -- or promoted. But you don't need a magazine article to find that.
