The Connecticut Legal Community’s Diversity & Inclusion Pledge & Plan

In 2016, the Connecticut Bar Association began an initiative to bring together legal leaders in the state to enhance diversity and inclusion in the Connecticut legal community. The Connecticut Bar Association continues to accept signatories to join the collective pledge, reflecting the commitment of Connecticut legal organizations to create more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments and for a collaborative plan to achieve this goal. The Connecticut Legal Community’s Diversity & Inclusion Pledge was presented at the Inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Summit, which was held on October 26, 2016 at Quinnipiac University School of Law. The pledge and plan is a multi-year commitment to enhancing diversity and inclusion in legal organizations, with different focuses each year to help signatories attain their diversity and inclusion goals.
