College Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commission All Fellows Update

Wednesday, June 30, 2021
Dear Fellows,
On behalf of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commission ("DEI Commission"), we would like to invite all Fellows to a meeting on June 30, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. EDT for an update on the work of the Commission. The format of the session is described below, and also will allow time for Fellows to discuss their thoughts and offer input in smaller groups.
ACB Education Chair Judge Craig Goldblatt will interview DEI Commission Co-Chairs Judge Jeff Hopkins and Judge Laurel Isicoff.
We anticipate a 20-minute update from the Judges on the important work and activities of the DEI Commission, followed by discussion sessions where Fellows can connect informally with Commission members in smaller groups.
As a reminder, the College established the DEI Commission earlier this year, with the following Mission Statement:.
To develop a comprehensive plan that instills mindfulness regarding all aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion, and actively promotes those values through the resources and endeavors of the College and Foundation. 
In April, the DEI Commission updated the College on its work to date, which you can view here.
Additional information about the members of the DEI Commission can be found here.
We hope that you will be able to make time to attend the June 30 update and discussion on this very important and vital initiative undertaken by the College.
