2016 Legal Diversity Summit

The Legal Diversity Summit aims to highlight the importance of diversity and inclusion efforts in the legal realm. Legal organizations and professionals face particular issues and challenges that are specific to their industry. How can legal professionals champion diversity and inclusion initiatives, both internally and externally? By holding an event that promotes discussion and dialogue about industry-specific diversity and inclusion topics, the National Diversity Council hopes to encourage dialogue and best practice sharing amongst leaders in the legal field.
