Clark Hill Strasburger Attorney Earsa Jackson Published in Global Franchise Magazine, “Why Diversity Can Bring You Success,” June 2018
DALLAS, TX – Earsa Jackson, Member in Clark Hill Strasburger’s Franchise & Distribution and Litigation teams, was recently published in Global Franchise Magazine’s Franchising Advice section. The article, “Why Diversity Can Bring You Success,” discusses a study done by Pricewaterhousecoopers entitled Franchise Business Ownership by Minority and Gender Groups: An Update for the IFA Foundation (March 9, 2018). The study examined the representation of minorities in franchising and concluded that franchising is becoming more diverse.
“The percentage of minorities represented in franchising doubled from 2007 to 2012. This growth is expected to continue, reflecting the rapid changes in U.S. demographics generally,” wrote Earsa.
Earsa serves as the Chair for Clark Hill Strasburger’s Franchise & Distribution team and the Chair of the Firm’s Diversity Committee. Earsa structures franchises, assists franchisors with on-going transactional needs as well as litigation and is a Certified Franchise Executive. She also chairs the Diversity Institute of the International Franchise Association’s Foundation.
