For Bloomberg Opinion, CLP senior research fellow Paola Cecchi-Dimeglio discusses her research on increasing diversity in the legal profession and why simple fixes like the Rooney Rule and the Mansfield Rule don’t work. She writes: “The reason these rules haven’t immediately (or even slowly) increased diversity is that one simple rule carried out right before a hiring or promotion cannot fix a systemic problem. There is no silver bullet. Behavioral science is clear: Interrupting bias requires a suite of interventions at various points in time. Organizations change when processes do.”
