Speakers

Hiscock & Barclay Of Counsel Angela C. Winfield spoke at Syracuse University's College of Law Conference on Racial Diversity in Legal Education and the Legal Profession on October 17, 2014. Winfield co-facilitated a discussion on diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

The one-day conference examined and discussed obstacles to racial and ethnic diversity and inclusion in legal education and the legal profession. Some of the topics discussed included how to:

  • Identify and implement effective approaches to increase racial and ethnic diversity in law schools.
  • Develop essential lawyering skills and cultural competencies to meet the legal needs of diverse communities.
  • Explore how law schools can create an environment where students of color thrive, engage, and remain connected to the law school and the legal community at large.
  • Devise an action plan for law schools and legal employers that incorporates deliberate efforts to make inclusion matter in their institutions and their communities.
