YLS Diversity Committee Meeting
Date: 01/29/2014
Location: The Chicago Bar Association, 321 South Plymouth Court, Chicago, IL 60604

SPEAKER: Peggy Davis, Chicago Committee
TOPIC: Diversity in the Chicago Legal Community

Join us as Peggy Davis leads a discussion of Diversity in the Chicago Legal Community as seen through the eyes of the Chicago Committee. Ms. Davis is the current executive director of the Chicago Committee, a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession through the retention and promotion of attorneys of color in Chicago law firms. Although the organization started out as an affinity organization, over the past twenty-five years it has significantly expanded in scope and now provides independent programs and resources targeted to the range of its constituents. The Committee's constituents include forty-five member firms and their management, human resources personnel, diversity committee members and attorneys of color.
