eTERA Consulting, an internationally recognized and award-winning leader in data and technology management, announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership with Diverse Partners Network (DPN) to further support the organization’s mission which is to bring together minority law firm partners to help prepare them for the challenges inherent in their professional legal industry roles.
“We are excited for the opportunity to work alongside such a well-regarded company that shares our values and recognizes the importance of a diverse workforce,” said Ben Wilson, Founder of DPN and Managing Principal at Beveridge & Diamond, PC. “With its strong influence in the legal community, we are confident that eTERA Consulting will enhance our visibility and promote the mission of DPN.”
Recently, the American Bar Association (ABA) pledged to address any stagnation on diversity in the legal profession as a whole. As such, the ABA plans to attract more minority attorneys through a strategic plan of accountability and growth. Supporting these initiatives, DPN provides its national membership base with a weekly email newsletter containing member news, upcoming events, and educational opportunities. With over 1,000 members in cities across the United States and Canada, DPN hosts events for diverse partners, associates and in-house counsel for the purpose of showing diverse attorneys how to build and grow their practices. DPN also helps diverse attorneys with their career path, whether moving from the private sector to the public sector (and vice versa), or among law firms and companies.
“One of eTERA’s deeply rooted core values is to ensure a wide range of diversity throughout the company,” said Scott Holec, eTERA Consulting’s President. “Over the past 11 years, we have found that gaining insight from a variety of different perspectives has allowed us to grow into the company we are today. We look forward to working with DPN and furthering the mission to expand and support diversity within the legal sector across the U.S.”
