New Orleans Industry Partnerships, Business Initiatives Fuel Diversity, Equity, InclusionRead Time: 1 min
Director of Human Resources and Chief Diversity Officer Eliska Plunkett was interviewed for a recent New Orleans CityBusiness profile, “New Orleans Industry Partnerships, Business Initiatives Fuel Diversity, Equity, Inclusion,” about an initiative to drive change in the local legal diversity landscape. She outlined how the group she helped start last year, New Orleans Legal Diversity Collaborative (NOLDC), works to address diversity, equity, and inclusion issues in the legal field.
“I accepted the role during the same timeframe Heather did; I also saw press releases from law firms announcing the same appointments,” said Eliska Plunkett. “We all knew each other from within the industry, so we said let’s collaborate, pool resources, form a fellowship and share best practices of what we can do to improve DEI and get initiatives pushed across the finish line at our law firms.”
