McGuireWoods Atlanta associate Natasha Cooper recently spoke to client Guardian Life Insurance’s legal department about ways to increase the diversity pipeline in the legal industry. Guardian diversity strategy partner Ellie Nieves, who also is the company’s vice president and counsel for government affairs, asked Cooper to give the Feb. 25, 2020, presentation.

As chair of the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division Litigation Committee and a member of the ABA Litigation Section Diversity Committee, Cooper explained to Guardian’s legal department how ABA Resolution 113 — which urges legal services providers to expand opportunities for lawyers of color, women and LGBTQ lawyers and asks clients to direct more of their legal work to them — has increased diversity efforts within law firms and in-house legal departments and what the ABA is doing to further push these initiatives.
