Diversity initiatives are becoming more prevalent in corporate legal departments and claims litigation organizations. Wolters Kluwer ELM Solutions has worked with our corporate and law firm clients and industry diversity experts to create our Passport Diversity Module. The module helps to drive and support diversity initiatives by tracking the diversity data of legal service providers by firm and timekeeper. The module automates the process of capturing diversity information, provides metrics and dashboards to share the success of the program, and tracks compliance against program objectives over time. It ensures that organizations are able to not only track diversity at the firm level, but also understand if firms are diverse across their timekeeper roles.  

Key Features of the Passport Diversity Module include:

  • Tracks both organization and timekeeper diversity data, including:
    • Gender
    • Minority status
    • LGBT status
    • Veteran status
    • Disability status
    • Flex time status
    • NAMWOLF (National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms) status
  • Client-customizable data fields allow for additional categories or revisions to current ones to match your internal vocabulary and diversity tracking
  • Collects diversity data via the Passport Collaboration Portal from your firms using the Collaboration Module; diversity data can also be manually entered by clients
  • Displays law firm and diversity information from one dashboard or from supplementary reports, creating one comprehensive view of firm data
  • Includes pre-built reports to build law firm dashboards and view diversity trend data over time
