This past year has seen tremendous, perhaps even unforeseen, strides in many diversity-related matters. In others, there is still much work to be done. Key to all progress is open and respectful dialogue and education.
The ISBA’s definition of diversity is as all-encompassing as the committees and section councils that comprise the Diversity Leadership Council. These working groups address issues and concerns related to women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBT individuals, disability matters, human rights, international law and immigration. While efforts were made to include articles representative of each of these groups, as well as a variety of viewpoints, the content of this newsletter is limited by the contributions received. Please contact the editor with story ideas and contributions for future issues.
