Kristin Theis-Alvarez, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at the UC Berkeley School of Law, shares her insider perspective on the recent decision to withdraw from US News Rankings and describes how students can demonstrate the Berkeley ethos to secure a spot in this prestigious program. [Show Summary] Thanks for joining me for the 504th episode of Admissions Straight Talk. Are you applying to law school this cycle? Are you planning ahead to apply to law school next year or later? Are you competitive at your target programs? Accepted's Law School Admissions Quiz can give you a quick reality check. Just go to accepted.com/law-quiz, complete the quiz, and you'll not only get your assessment but also tips on how to improve your chances of acceptance. Plus it's all free.  I'm delighted to have on Admissions Straight Talk, Kristin Theis-Alvarez, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at the University of California Berkeley School of Law. Dean Theis-Alvarez earned her BA in Rhetoric and Native American Studies from UC Berkeley and her JD from Stanford Law, graduating from Stanford in 2000. She has been with Berkeley Law in different roles since 2007 and became Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid in 2018. In addition to her duties at Berkeley, she's a member of the Board of Trustees and Chair of the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee for the Law School Admissions Council.  Can you start by giving an overview of the more distinctive elements of the Berkeley Law JD program? [2:08] It's a little bit challenging to encapsulate them, but I will try to hit some of them and I imagine through the rest of the questions, others may emerge.  I like to start with the first year because frankly, it's a point of distinction between us and a lot of our peer schools. We are firm believers that there are a lot of law schools that give a really great education and it becomes more about fit and where you want to spend three years as well as what in particular you want to get out of it. One of the places where we are different is in what we will allow people to do in the first year. You may have this idea that all of the curriculum in the first year is set and you just sort of suffer through it and then you get to do fun stuff in your second and third years. That's the case probably in many places, but certainly not the case at Berkeley. We made a really distinct choice, many years ago that if we're going to recruit, and we do like to recruit students who have a strong track record of engagement, then we should allow them to be engaged and to do what they care about most. That shouldn't take away from, but augment their experience. We will allow people to join any of the journals except California Law Reviews as first-year students. We'll allow students to get involved in our pro bono program, which has a number of distinct aspects, but the most well-recognized is the student-initiated legal projects, which are hands-on legal work, supervised by attorneys and community partners. First-year law students are actually doing things that make a difference like representing someone who is in the process of seeking asylum. There are over 40 of them this year.  We also let people try out for the competition team. If you're someone who's really passionate about moot court or mock trial and you plan to be a litigator and you want to keep doing that, you can do that in your first year.  Similarly, the curriculum is actually not nearly as fixed as it used to be. We went through curricular reform a few years ago, and we made the decision to remove property, which is typically one of the core required courses, not only as a first-year requirement but as a graduation requirement. We also took a unit from torts and reduced it by a unit to add a unit, which sort of equates to hours in legal education to the legal research and writing program so that people were getting more practice, developing more skills,

How To Succeed at Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Work, with guest Sarah Cordivano

HR MATTERS

When you're the first DEI role in an organisation, not only are you starting a job from scratch, so is your employer: often they don't yet understand what your role is. It's not a plug and play situation but a new function inside an organisation without a lot of legacy to stand on. Moreover, expectations of what this work is like are often different than the reality – for both the DEI professional and the organisation. To share her own learnings, Sarah Cordivano wrote the book ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: How to succeed at an impossible job'. A very honest and practical look at what it's like to work in DEI – and how to turn that into a success. In Sarah's experience, DEI work in an organisation mainly consists of change management, project management, communications and strategic thinking. But this is also emotionally involved work: it's very personal to people. It's a delicate space, sometimes with trauma involved, and it's directly connected to people and their identity in so many ways. And it's often connected with deep motivation and personal experiences of the DEI professional themselves. It's hard to build something new in this emotionally charged space, to persevere and remain resilient in it. Working on DEI in organisations, and doing that successfully, can take you on an intense journey to figure out what resilience means to you (and coaching can be helpful there). “You have to do a lot of personal work to make sure that you succeed in the job and also that you have the resilience to stick with it for a long time.” That starts with expectation setting: being clear about what you expect both of others and yourself. It also takes some work to align individual purpose and drives to reality. When you're in this work, you want fast change and that may not be the speed of the reality of it. Sarah realised she needs to make sure to have many motivators to do this work, including passion and purpose as well as realism and data. What helps is to have a frame of mind around success, and to use data to measure impact – not just as a reporting mechanism in the organisation, but for yourself as well. For Sarah, this has made it easier to get a sense of accomplishment along the way and to stay motivated. On all of those levels: “You need to make sure that you get what you need so that you can make the impact you want to have.” You need a little bit of everything to do this work successfully. And it's important work. Let's set you up to do it well, putting all of those pieces together.

Fads are a constant in business.  Consultants have a field day. They rush around providing companies with ideas on how to ride the new fashion wave.  They then have to milk it as hard as possible, because they know it will be soon supplanted by the next fad.  Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is right up there as the latest fad in Japan.  I am not saying that DEI isn't legitimate or important.  What I am saying is that for many companies, this is a patina of legitimacy, a fig leaf, as they seek to show good citizenship rather than a heartfelt belief in the importance of DEI itself.  “If others are doing it, then we should be doing it too”, is more the motivation, in many cases in Japan. The benefits of DEI in the West are numerous.  These include faster problem-solving, better decision-making, increased innovation, employee engagement and better financial performance.  None of these outcomes have been accepted as relevant in Japan as yet.  The scope is also quite different. In the West, we are dealing with generational, gender, ethnic, cultural and religious differences in the melting pots of the world, in particular in the US.  In Japan only generational and gender differences are significant.  There are only 2.89 million foreigners living in Japan, who represent 2.3% of the total population, so that is a very small share and the consequent impact is negligible.  Japanese are so flexible.  They manage to celebrate their children's 5th and 7th birthdays with a Shinto Ceremony, have a Christian style wedding ceremony at a chapel and be cremated as Buddhists, so their religious tolerance and flexibility is pretty high.  Muslims are 0.15% and Christians 1.5% of the population of Japan, so again both religions are basically insignificant.  If you think about it, the vast majority of workers in Japan never encounter a foreigner while working. They do encounter young people joining the workforce and they do encounter women working in larger numbers though.  The female employment rate is around 52%.  In fact, pre-Covid, the average percentage rate of 15 to 64 years old women in the workforce for the OECD was 65%, whereas in Japan it was 73%.  However, 32% of women workers were working 40 hours plus a week and 26% were working between 15-29 hours a week.  Seventy percent of male workers worked for 8 hours or more a day, while the same ratio for women was 40%, because often they are employed as part-time workers.   Men work ten hours a week more than women in Japan, the highest disparity in the Group Of Seven nations. Professor Isamu Yamamoto from Keio University did a study of listed companies from 2010 to 2015 and showed that a rise of 0.1% in the ratio of female managerial positions, resulted in an increase of 0.5% in return on assets and 13% in productivity improvement.  Additionally, he found that there were notable earnings improvements at companies in Japan where 15% or more managerial positions were held by women.  The study concluded, “Productivity improves possibly because the increased chances of promotion (for women) raise their motivation”.  However, only 8.6% of Japanese companies have women in managerial positions, despite the Japanese Government's 30% target, while 45% have no female managers at all.  Only 8% of companies have a female president and roughly half of that number took over from their husband when he passed away. The opportunity is there for Japan to do much more in terms of diversity around embracing the ideas of the younger generation, but company hierarchies are constructed according to age and stage of service in the company. That is, the older you are and the longer you have been there, the more valued is your opinion.  Japanese youth are encouraged to heed to Victorian England's child raising mantra of “seen but not heard”.  Organic change around doing more, to structurally embrace the views of the youth, are probably going to take a thousand years to see any major change in Japan. When we are approached by Japanese companies to do some work in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion area they are invariably asking us to train the women.  The problem with that idea is that women are not impacting the promotion stakes inside companies, as that is the bailiwick of male managers.  The men need the training too. There are few role models for women in the leadership area and few appropriate mentors.  Internally developed company training is often geared up for a man's approach to leading, rather than something more universal and applicable for anyone. The numbers of participants in our public training classes are skewed with around 60% to 70% male, because companies are investing in the men, more than the women.  This almost ensures that the women will be overlooked for promotion opportunities compared to the men. The simple strategy though is to focus on numbers.  How many more women can we get into leadership positions, to make our firm look like a model citizen.  There may be an argument for quotas in the short term, because without them and with only a reliance on organic growth, basically not much has changed in the last few decades.  Ultimately, the environment for women to become leaders and for the young to be heard more is about the environment being created inside the company.  The latter issue may get solved quite simply, because of the shortage of supply will be forcing companies to do more to retain young talent.  Women on the other hand, need a big push from the top, if anything going to change, because the revolution emanating from the bottom will just never happen.

Host Karl catches up with Yvette Steele. Yvette Steele is a global diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) leader building inclusive and equitable workplaces one employee at a time. Her belief that “inclusion is everybody's job that anybody can do” was the catalyst of the book “Impactful Inclusion Toolkit: 52 Activities to Help You Learn and Practice Inclusion Everyday in the Workplace.”  Since entering the workforce in the late 1980's, she was frequently the only African American woman on the team or one of a few where bias, sexism, racism and prejudice were served daily making it impossible to consistently perform at peak levels. Decades later, these issues persist with the same intensity where many continue to be disempowered in their efforts to maximize potential.  In this time of increased awareness of unfair systems and practices plaguing people of color, individuals with disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community and others, her book provides the roadmap to acquire the skills needed to create cultures of equity, inclusion and belonging. Yvette has been recognized as a diversity thought leader on the inaugural Channel Futures DE&I 101 List for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion through words, actions, and leadership and has served on the DEI Advisory Committee for YMCA-USA, Tech Advisory Board Steering Committee for the National Urban League, and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force for Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce.  You'll find her calling out the issues and providing solutions on diversity and workforce focused podcasts, blogs, news articles and panel discussions to include the Wall Street Journal, the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) and the ChannelPro Network.  Resources and Links:  https://www.amazon.com/Impactful-Inclusion-Toolkit-Activities-Workplace/dp/1119930200/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/yvetteportersteele/ Sponsor Memo: SBT Tech Community his podcast is sponsored by the Small Biz Thoughts Technology Community.  Check us out at SmallBizThoughts.org Forms, templates, and checklists are just the start. Our Community includes ALL of the best-selling books on managed services in all available formats, plus free training, members-only programs, and the best business training available to managed service providers anywhere.

Mary and I sat down and discussed issues surrounding women in the fire service, power dynamics and how stereotypical beliefs affect both the women and those dynamics. This conversation, ranges and topics yet barely scratches the surface of what needs to be discussed.

Recently a listener wrote in to ask what is wrong with DEI training. After all, she said, her black friend was the DEI director at her work and thinks it's wonderful. DEI, like CRT, SEL and CSE (a quick internet search will reveal what these woke acronyms stand for) are all part of the cultural Marxism that we are being forced to serve up with our Thanksgiving dinners this year. Hint: they do not mean what most of us thought they would mean. Definitions have changed in the woke world of ever-changing standards and absurdity. Good news, though!
