Keynote speaker Biography:

Chief Judge Diane P. Wood, Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals

 

A resident of DuPage County for over 30 years, Chief Judge Wood will deliver the keynote address to DCBA’s luncheon at Cantigny, based on this year’s Law Day theme “14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy.” She is in an extraordinary position to assess the impact of the Constitution on those with whom she comes into contact as a jurist, and also brings the experiences of educator and world traveler to the bench. Recent developments have made Judge Wood's Law Day speech on equal protection particularly interesting. Judge Wood will speak to us one month to the day since she issued the landmark decision, Hively v. Ivy Tech, in which the Seventh Circuit became the first court to expressly hold that workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is actionable under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.  A resident of DuPage County for over 30 years, Chief Judge Wood will deliver the keynote address to DCBA’s luncheon at Cantigny, based on this year’s Law Day theme “14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy.”  She is in an extraordinary position to assess the impact of the Constitution on those with whom she comes into contact as a jurist, and also brings the experiences of educator and world traveler to the bench.
