Alysia Keating is the first-ever director of diversity and gender equality at the Allegheny County Bar Association. Ipso Facto spoke with the Penn graduate about the state of diversity and equality in the Pittsburgh legal community and what it was like for her to ditch a successful career at Big Law to raise a family. Here's a preview of that conversation:
Ipso: If you could make one problem completely disappear, which would it be?
Keating: It would be for workplaces to be more inclusive. You don't realize that you may not be as inclusive as you think you are. Besides "Where do I find diverse candidates?," the other question is "How do I keep women and how do I keep diverse candidates?"
