CLP affiliate and current Associate Professor in Strategy & Organisation at Cambridge Judge Business School Lionel Paolella has published new research on hiring and diversity. As a news posting from the Cambridge Network describes, this new work “finds that law firms that increase the number of women in the most senior positions inadvertently neglect the recruitment of women at lower levels – perhaps because the firm decides it has done enough rather than devote more resources to signal diversity to stakeholders.” This research builds on Paolella’s prior work which “focused on how law firms use ’organisational licensing’ through the hiring of some senior women to avoid hiring more women throughout the firm.”
