Looking to move the needle on diversity, equity, and inclusion within your law firm? Join the ABA Young Lawyers Division’s Diversity & Inclusion Team and various firm diversity chairs as they discuss developing and implementing meaningful inclusion plans.

Additionally, you will learn how inclusion plans can develop the next generation of lawyers, with a focus on ensuring the success of historically underrepresented attorneys.
