You may remember Dr. Flynn from last year's Town Hall conversation on Diversity and its Impact on the Legal Profession. In this program, Dr. Flynn will revisit key ideas about diversity, equity, and inclusion in relation to both the legal profession and society in general. In the wake of nationwide and global protests about systemic and institutional racism, there are a number of questions about how members of society can work toward anti-racist goals. Recognizing the ways in which inequity persists in our institutions – including law enforcement and criminal justice – is a fundamental move for creating institutions for equity. This presentation will provide a quick summary of the ways in which inequity has appeared in our nation and will provide considerable time for question and answers about the issues.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Become familiar with key terms related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)
  • Discuss recent protests and events related to DEI
  • Consider key moments in the history of inequity in the United States
  • Consider ideas about promoting DEI in the legal profession and society
