Georgia Diversity Program

The State Bar of Georgia Diversity Program promotes inclusion of all members of the State Bar of Georgia regardless of race, nationality, sex, religion, sexual preference or disability. Its main focus is to:

  1. provide forums and an annual CLE on diversity trends, policies and initiatives in the legal profession;
  2. conduct an annual business development symposium designed to provide majority and minority-owned law firms opportunities to hear from corporate in-house counsel on how corporations measure diversity initiatives of firms when selecting outside counsel, teach business development skills and provide opportunities to meet with in-house counsel for current and future business development opportunities;
  3. present an annual judicial and summer associates reception to confirm to its pipeline candidates the State Bar of Georgia's commitment to diversity in the profession; and
  4. conduct the High School Pipeline Project that introduces law firms to talented minority students in Georgia's high schools who have expressed an interest in attending law school after college.
