How can it be that we are still talking about the need to make lasting progress in diversity and to make the legal community more inclusive? Many law firms and most legal departments have engaged in diversity efforts for years now and, more recently, have embraced the idea that creating an inclusive culture is key to reaching success. While we can all be well-meaning, lasting change will not take place until we have leadership that is technically competent and, more importantly, culturally responsible. Caprice D. Hollins, Psy. D., co-founder of Cultures Connecting, an organization dedicated to addressing race relations in the 21st century, will lead and facilitate a challenging hands-on workshop addressing cultural competence.

June 13: Poverty Simulation Exercise Open to Law Students!

povertysimulationSpace is Limited! RSVP ASAP

Join us for an eye-opening opportunity to deepen your understanding of the challenges faced by those living in poverty and find out about ways to help. During the exercise, participants role-play the lives of low-income families, from single parents trying to care for their children to seniors trying to maintain their self-sufficiency on Social Security. The task of each family is to provide food, shelter and other basic necessities on a limited budget while interacting with community resources such as the bank, grocery store, school, and legal aid. After the training is over, there will be a debriefing discussion. “The Poverty Simulation Kit” was created by Missouri Association for Community Action to promote poverty awareness, increase understanding and inspire local change. The “Kit” has been used by over 1,000 organizations worldwide, including schools, nonprofits, and governmental agencies. If you would like a preview of the event, this short video was made by a former participant: Please click HERE.
