The Diversity & Inclusion Committee’s five-part mission is: (1) to improve access to legal information and appellate education for a diverse cross-section of students and educators in the state of Florida in high schools, colleges, and law schools; (2) to increase, within our Section, awareness of issues related to systemic discrimination and implicit bias; (3) to achieve greater diversity in our Section and in our practice areas; (4) to support diversity and inclusion efforts of other legal or educational organizations; and (5) to promote and facilitate programs to reduce barriers in the law and legal profession for all. This mission creates numerous public-facing leadership and mentorship opportunities. Active Committee members will gain experience within the Section and interact with students, educators, attorneys, voluntary bar associations, and other Florida Bar Sections and Committees.
