Cheyne R. Scott analyzed the parallels between the lack of diversity in the fields of journalism and law in an article published in the New Jersey State Bar Association Diversity Committee Newsletter. The article, titled The Impact of the Lack of Diversity in the Journalism and in the Legal Profession, discussed why there is a lack of diversity, why diversity is important, and how progress can be made towards solving this problem. Ms. Scott advised law firms and media companies to institute implicit bias training and to develop opportunities for minority students, practices which other companies will follow. She also wrote about how change can be influenced by ranking organizations according to their diversity practices and publicizing diversity statistics. Ms. Scott is a member of the Diversity Committee and a fellow of the Leadership Academy. The Leadership Academy seeks to develop informed, aware, and committed future leaders of the bar and beyond.
