Hidden Barriers Assessment

Estimated time to complete: 6 minutes

Welcome to the Hidden Barriers Assessment. It is designed to help you identify any impediments that may be contributing to higher attrition rates among attorneys in underrepresented groups in your firm.

In most law firms, traditionally underrepresented groups include female, LGBTQ, racially/ethnically diverse, and disabled lawyers. However, in Minority- and Women-Owned law firms, white men could be underrepresented. Answer the questions based on what group(s) are underrepresented in your firm.

The assessment takes about 5 minutes to complete. There are three questions for each of the 10 most common hidden barriers to success that disproportionately impact attorneys in underrepresented groups. Try to answer the questions for the firm overall. If your law firm is too large and you don’t feel you have a good sense of what is happening across the firm, then answer the questions based on your particular practice group or office.

Your answers are completely anonymous. At the end of the assessment, you will receive instant results based on your answers. None of the information is stored by the website app.
