Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Mission Statement

Our Work

Each year, the Diversity & Inclusion Subcommittee hosts two events focusing on law students and attorneys to increase trust and estate diversity. We also encourage members of the trust and estate section to participate in events in the community that promote diversity and inclusion. The Diversity & Inclusion Subcommittee also collaborates with local minority, LGBT, disability, and professional organizations as well as other sections of the Bar and universities to put on networking events and CLEs that promote an inclusive environment and recognizes the value of diversity.
