This is a particularly well thought through new policy from the General Counsel of Microsoft. It recognises that, at entry level, there's a reasonably good proportion of young lawyers from non-traditional backgrounds but that that falls away dramatically so that the percentages of BigLaw partners from diverse backgrounds are very low. It addresses this problem by incentivising BigLaw through bonuses related to diversity of partner level lawyers. I like that Microsoft are taking a positive bonus awarding approach to encourage high diversity rather than an approach that 'punishes' low diversity law firms. I'd love to see more FTSE100 companies in the UK taking this kind of approach.
