Unsure what to do with your patriotic feelings this year? Why not support organizations working to make the American legal industry more equitable for lawyers of color.

The Diverse Attorney Pipeline Program aims to rectify the continued decline of underrepresented women of color in the legal profession by equipping women of color law students with intensive professional development, academic coaching, attorney and law student mentoring, and summer positions at law firms and corporations following their first year of law school.

Diversity Lab is an incubator for innovative ideas and solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in law. Experimental ideas are created through our Hackathons and piloted in collaboration with more than 150 top law firms and legal departments across the country. Diversity Lab leverages data, behavioral science, design thinking, and technology to further develop and test the ideas, measure the results, and share lessons learned.

The Black Women Lawyers Association of Greater Chicago has developed programs and workshops to advance and assist African-American female lawyers in public and private practice, the judiciary and academia. Through building coalitions with other organizations, BWLA not only aims to address and combat the challenges that African-American female lawyers face in the profession, but through its programming and diversity initiatives, BWLA also brings about positive change in the legal workplace.
