Diversity Committee

Description:  The Diversity Committee actively recruits new members to our Section and our Committee from diverse backgrounds from the Bar and from law schools throughout the State.  We are committed to expanding the number of speakers with diverse backgrounds at our events and highlighting the skills and personal achievements of more attorneys of diverse backgrounds at our meetings and in our Section’s publication.  By truly incorporating diversity, this Committee hopes to promote mutual respect and make possible the full, effective use of the talents and abilities of all and to ensure that the composition of the Section and its leadership reflects the diversity of our State.
