Annual Brunch for Bars
Held on Sunday April 17, 2016; 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The State Bar of Michigan Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee and Equal Access Initiative co-hosted the second annual Brunch for Bars the morning after the Wolverine Bar Association’s 54th Annual Barristers Ball. This event offered an opportunity for leaders of local and affinity bar associations to network, share information, and discuss collaboration opportunities.
Special guest, ABA President, Paulette Brown, joined us to provide an update on the Diversity and Inclusion 360 Commission that was initiated to formulate methods, policy, standards, and practices to best advance diversity and inclusion over the next ten years.
