857 women of color attorneys from across the nation participated in our online web survey, 500 participated in live audience testing at our Fifth Annual Conference, and 40 participated in our focus groups. Their qualitative and quantitative responses enabled us to delve sufficiently into perspectives on the transition from the law firm setting to the corporate setting; compare the law firm environment to the corporate environment; and share perceptions about the in-house work environment, perceived barriers, advancement opportunities, and career aspirations.
MULTIPLE COMPONENTS: The research consisted of three components: (1) a web-based survey; (2) a live audience response survey of participants at the Fifth Annual Conference; and (3) three focus groups conducted before and after the conference at the CBS Television City Research Center at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
A. THE WEB-BASED SURVEY
DESIGN OF THE WEB-BASED SURVEY: The CCWC® online survey for in-house women of color was designed by the Center for Creative Leadership, a non-profit global provider of leadership education and research.
