BBA: Spotlight on Boston: The Legal Profession and Race Inequity

  • Boston Bar Association 16 Beacon Street Boston, MA, 02108 United States (map)

Description:

Please join us for an invigorating roundtable discussion about the recent Boston Globe Spotlight seven-part series, “Boston. Racism. Image. Reality.” Featuring the Boston Globe’s Social Justice/Race reporter, Meghan Irons, the panel will discuss the ways in which the Spotlight series both exposed and highlighted the scope of the systemic challenges facing the Boston-area legal community when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusion. The panel will also focus on the current work being done in legal circles to address these challenges, and will showcase the efforts of Boston-based organizations that offer race-oriented dialogues and workshops to help organizations better understand how racism manifests in our personal lives, workplaces, and communities. You will not want to miss this amazing event! Reception to follow.

This program is free and open to all.
