The Inclusion Blueprint is a joint initiative between ChIPs and Diversity Lab. It provides diversity benchmarks of historically underrepresented groups (female lawyers, underrepresented racial/ethnic lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities) in law firm leadership and across practice groups (including IP). The Inclusion Blueprint also includes inclusion efforts for law firms to adopt to ensure their lawyers have fair and equal access to compensation, leadership roles, and other critical career-enhancing opportunities.
The Inclusion Blueprint is conducted annually and is open to Am Law 200 firms by invitation. In early 2021, the Inclusion Blueprint will be released as an assessment and law firms will be asked to submit responses to measure their actions and allow for benchmarking efforts against other firms.
