The DEI Commission will present its final report at the March 2022 Annual Meeting in Denver . Our Fellows should also expect to hear from the DEI Commission as they report on their plans and progress and provide information to enhance our awareness regarding these important issues . Consistent with that objective , the DEI Commission will be presenting a program during the upcoming All-Fellows Luncheon in Indianapolis to promote mindfulness regarding diversity , equity and inclusion
among our Fellows .
The DEI Commission is oriented towards action and will need our collective support and participation . In the words of Judge Hopkins and Judge Isicoff , “ We can accomplish anything to which we set our hearts and our minds to make our profession look more like the broad cross-section of people whose interests we serve .”
Looking forward to meeting you where you are , whether virtually or – hopefully – in person in Indianapolis . Keep well .
