Making Diversity Work, Practical Steps for Implementing Cultural Change
The MDLA is holding its annual Diversity Event on June 19 at Target Field. That day has special meaning as it is Juneteenth — a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the United States Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in 45 states. Only the states of Hawaii, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota and South Dakota do not recognize Juneteenth. The diversity initiative has been gaining momentum in our organization as members continue to strive to keep the industry open to people of any background or status. We have the privilege of hearing from Dr. John Wright about this special holiday.

This CLE will focus on practical steps for implementing diversity and inclusion initiatives. Sue Fischer and Sheila Engelmeier will present a lecture about how culture change can be accomplished in a law firm setting. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion in which attorneys share tips for success and advice regarding setbacks they have experienced at their own firms.
