Diversity and Inclusion
What diversity and inclusion goals did the Section include in the 2018-2019 work plan, how did you approach these goals, and what was the result?

The Section made it a goal to have more diversity among the Governing Council members as well as in presenters at seminars.  Both of these goals were achieved.  One of the three members elected to the Council is a person of color, and several of the presenters at seminars, including the Minnesota Employment Law Institute, were people of color. 

Other Section Accomplishments
We made it a goal of the Section to increase inclusion of out-state members.  We accomplished this goal by hosting a training session in out-state Minnesota.  We also looked at other pro bono ways members can serve, including sponsoring a CLE on volunteerism.
