Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today on the podcast, we have guest Alexis Yee-Garcia, who manages diversity, equity, and inclusion programs at a BigLaw firm.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Alexis Yee-Garcia's professional background
  • What does "diversity and inclusion" mean in the legal employment context?
  • How can you tell if a firm is really serious about diversity and inclusion?
  • Participating in minority career fairs or summer programs
  • How to leverage a diverse background throughout your legal career
