In 2020, supporters of racial equity from some of the nation’s best-known corporations approached the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies—a Washington, DC think tank focused on issues affecting Black communities—for ideas on how to effectively counter racial bias and increase workplace diversity, especially in managerial and governance positions, in compliance with the law.

Accordingly, the Joint Center asked WilmerHale to create a report, essentially a toolkit for companies intent on diversifying their ranks and addressing systemic bias while minimizing legal risks. The report was authored by partners Ronald C. Machen, Matt Jones and Laura E. Schneider, and senior associates Cadene Russell Brooks, Jon Weingart, and Brittany Llewellyn.
