BigLaw: Is it Inherently Unequal?

As an escapee of BigLaw, I know what the model is – and it ain’t pretty when it comes to things like gender equality. My new article in Above The Law discusses BigLaw, and is entitled “Can Women Lawyers Ever Find Equality In Biglaw?” It begins: “Hey — who cares if Biglaw is white and…

Can Women Lawyers Ever Find Equality In Biglaw?

My new article in Above The Law is entitled “Can Women Lawyers Ever Find Equality In Biglaw?” It begins: “Hey — who cares if Biglaw is white and male as long as it can charge $2,000 per hour (or more). It’s all about the money, after all. Isn’t it? Of course. As long as the…

Sex Discrimination v. Equality At BigLaw and Other Workplaces

By: Amy Epstein Gluck I know I have been prolific these past few months about gender equality, sexual harassment, retaliation, and equal pay (or lack thereof). I’ve talked to you about a myriad of scenarios: sex discrimination and unequal pay at BigLaw (also see Rich’s excellent BigLaw post here) and for the U.S. Women’s Soccer…

BigLaw:  Still A White “Bro’s Club”

Hey — who cares if BigLaw is white and male as long as you can charge $1,000 per hour (or more!).   Its all about the money, after all.  Isn’t it? Attorneys:  All the more reason to “go over the wall” and escape BigLaw … you have nothing to lose but your chains! Now back to the…

“At The End Of The Day, Most Men Don't Really Want Women In The C-Suite"

So notes a female GC in a New York Magazine piece, who also says that women still need to “have somebody—probably a man—who is willing to create some space for you.” The mag’s reporter spoke to eight women on Wall Street, one of whom is a long-time in-house lawyer, currently a GC, who asked “Why is…

Should Hope Solo Be Paid Less Than Clint Dempsey? (Is This Employment Discrimination?)

By: Amy Epstein Gluck Is she a less skilled soccer player? No. Is she “irrational?” No.  Heck no! When the U.S. women’s (winning) soccer team attempted to negotiate their pay and asked for raises so that their salaries approached that of the players on the U.S. men’s team, the U.S. Soccer Federation (“USSF”) called them…

“Put Out To Pasture”: And You Thought Employment Discrimination Was On The Wane!

From the salacious, to gender pay disparity, to “fire the old geezer.”  Boy, the New York Times today was chock-a-block with employment discrimination stories. Let’s start, of course, with the salacious. I have always advised that best employment practices start from the top down – a tone must be set from the top. But what if the…

"How to Bridge That Stubborn Pay Gap" — An Excellent NYT Article

Claire Cain Miller has written what I think is a very significant article about gender pay disparity in today’s New York Times, entitled “How to Bridge That Stubborn Pay Gap.” She writes that: “More than a half-century after President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, the gender pay gap is still with us. Women…

“Better Decisions Come From Diversity”

Who would ever have thought that the title quote of this blog came from the mouth of a private equity CEO! In an article in today’s New York Times entitled “Pursuing Gender Equality as a Competitive Advantage,” written by Leslie Picker, she notes (quite correctly) that there has been a “sluggish grind toward gender equality…
