To connect and train top leaders in the legal field with a focus on promoting diversity and inclusion.
A just legal field that actively celebrates and encourages diversity and inclusion.
Legal Diversity Week pulls in a diverse set of leaders within the legal arena including attorneys, paralegals, litigation managers, judges, and executives to celebrate and advance diversity in the legal field. Legal Diversity Week will take place over a four-day period of events that includes panels, symposiums, presentations, CLE workshops, mixers, and networking events. The week will serve as an opportunity to bring together individuals in the legal field and allow them to engage in frank and candid discussions with peers, share best practices, earn CLE credits, and learn from each other. Firms will be better equipped to navigate the ever changing landscape of diversity and inclusion and cultivate workplaces that encourage it. Lawyers will enhance their knowledge base on diversity and inclusion in the legal industry, and gain opportunities for networking with other likeminded professionals. This occasion will serve as a premier opportunity to recognize, support, and celebrate strides towards a more diverse and inclusive legal field.
Legal Diversity Week will be held Tuesday September 24th through Friday September 27th in Dallas and Tuesday October 29th through Friday November 1st in Houston, where diversity in the legal profession is more important than ever. Each location will host its own events with trainers, speakers and awards.
Legal Diversity Week falls under the auspices of The National Diversity Council, which is a non-partisan 501-c3 organization dedicated to being both a resource and advocate for the value of diversity and inclusion.
