SPOKANE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION
DIVERSITY SECTION

 

The mission of the Diversity Section of the Spokane County Bar Association is to promote diversity in the local legal community.

 

The Spokane County Bar Association Diversity Section is committed to promoting inclusiveness through ongoing efforts focusing on recruitment and retention of attorneys of color and diverse ethnic background. We are working within the Spokane legal community to increase diversity within the local bar association and judicial system. In collaboration with Gonzaga School of Law and other organizations, we are seeking ways to address the racial and ethnic disparities that currently exists.

 

With seed money donated from law firms and generated from our First Annual Diversity Luncheon, the Diversity Section established a Diversity Fund in honor of the late Carl Maxey, a Spokane lawyer and champion for civil rights. The Fund will be used to further the Section’s mission and may be available for scholarships.
