 DIVERSITY & INCLUSION INITIATIVES AND EFFORTS

The ALA’s Diversity & Inclusion Initiative aims to increase awareness of and sensitivity to the differences among our workforce and to advance the concept of inclusiveness and acceptance. ALA’s goal is to increase diversity and inclusion in the Association, in the legal management community and in all legal service organizations. To that end, the ALA’s mission is to provide each Member with the tools and resources required to be a leader in meeting ALA’s goal.  

The Philadelphia Chapter is committed to leading the way with diversity initiatives through leadership, education, advancement and development. Please take a moment to review our Mission Statement below.
