About Alton B. Harris
Al was a founding partner of the Chicago law firm of Ungaretti & Harris, which in 2015 merged into a large national law firm. At Ungaretti & Harris, Al served for many years as managing partner and then as a member of its Executive and Compensation Committees. In these roles, he had extensive experience watching and evaluating women as they moved up the career ladder. Along the way, Al developed a growing sensitivity to the barriers and biases women face in traditionally male career environments and began mentoring women in many career fields as well as researching and writing extensively on the subject of stereotypes and biases with a specialization in gender biases.
