Challenges Facing Diverse Attorneys

SJTlogoTuesday, April 30, 12:30-1:20pm,  Room 133, Gates Hall

The Minority Law Students Association invites you to join Chach Duarte White, Consultant for TrueBearing, and formerly Diversity Program Manager at the Washington State Bar Association. She will be discussing the WSBA Membership study which was in the spring of 2011 in order to achieve four interlocking goals:

1) Gather reliable demographic and career-related data about the WSBA membership overall;

2) Initiate an exploration of the characteristics and work experiences of diverse segments of the membership;

3) Explore patterns of professional transitions among the WSBA membership, identifying causal factors where possible, and

4) Establish a statistically reliable database that can serve as:

• a practical benchmark for understanding membership trends,

• a guide to policy and program planning, and

• a clear baseline for use in future program evaluation.

If you would like lunch please RSVP via Symplicity or gatespsl@uw.edu by 12:00 pm Monday, April 29, 2013. No RSVP for lunch accepted after 12:00 pm.
