Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Legal Profession

OWLSS is excited to announce our upcoming event: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Legal Profession. This virtual panel will be held on Thursday, October 5 from 1-2 p.m. via Zoom.

Throughout our country's history and particularly during the summer of 2020, we have seen atrocious acts of violence against people of color. Although the social media posts, protests, and other acts of support throughout the summer were integral to the support of the Black Lives Matter movement, the momentum and conversations about racial injustice must continue. Join us for an open, candid conversation about diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession, and what actionable steps and support we can provide in promoting diversity in the legal community.

Our panelists for this event include:
   

  • Carrington Buze, Judicial Law Clerk for the Iowa Supreme Court
  • Paulina Escobar, Associate at Stinson LLP
  • Neda Barrett, Staff Chair for the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
  • Dean Adrien Wing, Associate Dean for International and Comparative Law   

Please submit your questions for the panelists through this form. You can access the webinar via Zoom here.

This event is co-sponsored by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee and the Career Services Office.
