Worried BASF member

But will he give work to any "non-diverse" young attorneys, much less take them to lunch? I acknowledge the importance of diversity in the profession, but aren't there are some pressing issues that go beyond diversity? Namely, how do we handle unemployment and underemployment of young attorneys nowadays? The economy may be getting better slowly, but there are a ton of junior attorneys in the Bay Area and beyond that just can't land a job. There are no jobs to be had. MoFo certainly isn't hiring like they once were. This predicament does nothing to help the many other external stresses that junior attorneys are facing -- debt, depression, career stagnation, etc. In this climate, the BASF should make professional recovery a priority. Today's young attorneys -- regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation -- are tomorrow's BASF leaders.
