Diversifying the Law: Moving Beyond the Diversity & Inclusion Statement
Wed, April 5, 2017, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM CDT
One of the key aspects of the Wisconsin Association of African-American Lawyers' mission is its dedication to ensuring diversity in Wisconsin's legal community. Join us on April 5th as we unpack the intricacies surrounding the need for diversity in the legal profession. Panelists from a variety of backgrounds and legal sectors will provide strategies and tips on how firms and companies can advance their diversity efforts, and ultimately work toward a more consistently inclusive profession. We encourage attorneys from all legal sectors, law students, HR professionals, and diversity and inclusion partners to attend this event.
