Diversity and Inclusion


The Minnesota State Bar Association Practice Management and Marketing Section (the “Section”)  embraces the principles of diversity and inclusion. We do not view diversity as any single characteristic and appreciate that each member and potential member offers unique and valuable skills and perspectives that can advance the work of the Section.
To that end, we will

  1. seek out and promoting membership in the section among diverse persons
  2. encourage and supporting diverse persons already in the section membership to assume officer positions and leadership responsibilities
  3. seek out and promoting diverse persons to be CLE presenters
  4. encourage membership and officers alike to embrace the diversity goals of the Section
