Connecticut Bar Association Diversity Policy
Unanimously approved by the CBA House of Delegates on 3-23-15
The Connecticut Bar Association is committed to diversity in its membership, officers, staff, House of Delegates, Board of Governors, executive committee, sections and committees, and their respective leaders. Diversity is an inclusive concept encompassing gender, gender identity, race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, age, and disability.
We are a richer and more effective association because of diversity, as it increases our association’s strengths, capabilities, and adaptability. Through increased diversity, our organization can more effectively address member and societal needs with the varied perspectives, experiences, knowledge, information, and understanding inherent in a diverse relationship.
Diversity & Inclusion Committee
The Diversity & Inclusion Committee is charged with implementing the Diversity and Inclusion Policy of the Connecticut Bar Association (CBA). The Committee will adopt, monitor and promote a diversity and inclusion plan to achieve a genuine, sustainable diverse and inclusive environment within the CBA, throughout its membership and the Connecticut legal community at large.
