The purpose of the Diversity Leadership Fellows Program is to increase diversity and meaningful inclusion in the active membership of the ISBA and its section councils and committees; to give further emphasis to ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion to the ISBA; and to ultimately develop a diverse group of future leaders of the ISBA. These goals will be achieved by introducing new members (especially young lawyers and under-represented groups) to the work, structure, and policies of the ISBA.
The ISBA is seeking attorneys who show leadership potential and would add to the diversity of our section councils and committees—whether because of race, gender, sexual orientation, geographic location, practice area, or other background or experiences. Fellow candidates may be nominated by ISBA members or self-nominate.
Deadline for nominations is March 26.
