About this Event

Join the Austin Bar Association for its inaugural Equity Summit on Friday, May 14, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cost for the virtual event is free and open to the public.

5 hours partic. CLE; 5 hours Ethics

The program will begin with an introduction by Austin Bar President Kennon Wooten and Austin Bar Equity Committee Chair Judge Maya Guerra Gamble. Following the introduction, Equity Committee member David Holmes will read the Austin Bar’s Equity Statement and then Diana Reinhart will lead a brief session on mindfulness. Equity Committee members Mindy Gulanti and Neal Falgoust will moderate panel discussions on implicit bias and pro bono efforts to reduce the justice gap.

Confirmed speakers for the Equity Summit include former Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace B. Jefferson, former Austin City Council Member Ora Houston, community advocate and former AISD Board of Trustee Paul Saldaña, former Austin City Attorney and Greenberg Traurig Shareholder Karen Kennard, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Innocence Project of Texas Mike Ware, Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas Executive Director Alisa De Luna, LGBTQ activist Anna Nguyen, and partner at Deats, Durst and Owen, Manuel Quinto-Pozos.

The Austin Bar’s efforts to achieve racial equity and dismantle the systems created by institutional racism will take much longer than one year. As such, the Equity Committee will continue its work and plan to make the Equity Summit an annual event.

Once registered, you will receive the Zoom link in a confirmation email from Eventbrite.
