    The negative impact of academic workplace inequities may impact law school teaching and affect law students and their views of the structure of the legal workplace. Law school leaders and firm leaders may be unaware of the adverse physical and mental health outcomes resulting from workplace inequities. Professor Ceynar will discuss the study described in her article, “Dancing Backwards in High Heels: Female Professors Experience More Work Demands and Special Favor Requests, Particularly from Academically Entitled Students,” and make recommendations for improvement of inequities for women in the workplace. Attorney and Hispanic Bar President Leila Jade Levi will discuss the inequities in the legal profession that lead to a disintegration of well-being for lawyers. Levi works to improve how lawyers of color, particularly female lawyers of color, navigate the legal profession, whether improving boundaries at work, handling microaggressions, or thoughtful self-care for improvement of the treatment of lawyers.
