About the Program

How does intersectionality, allyship, and well-being all connect to one another? Intersectional allyship is important, but often allyship does not reach where it should or could be, leading to serious mental health and well-being issues for those in the legal profession. This seminar will explore these ideas, pose open questions about what we can collectively do as a movement and community, and consider next steps.
