Diversity & Inclusion Committee

With the ever changing legal landscape and the demand for diverse practitioners that reflect the global marketplace and the Harris County legal community, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee engages with lawyers across the spectrum of race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability status to promote and foster the spirit of inclusion in the profession.

Such engagement includes diversity mentoring and networking events that focus on issues and challenges affecting those legal practitioners mentioned above, and a women's mentoring breakfast that allows young women attorneys to network with one another and features prominent female lawyers in the community, who provide advice and share their experience.

This committee also organizes events for first generation lawyers that address the challenges unique to those who are the first in their family to become a lawyer.
