the legal profession. The committee focuses its work on retaining lawyers with
diverse backgrounds, building a diversity pipeline to the legal profession, and
informing the broader legal community about issues surrounding diversity and
Diversity Pipeline:The Diversity Pipeline work group is a subcommittee of the HCBA Diversity Committee. The group works with community partners, such as Achieve Minneapolis and the Minnesota Urban Debate League, to proactively create the next generation of attorneys. By collaborating with local firms, nonprofits, and law schools, we look forward to building a coordinated, collective approach to educating youth from underrepresented backgrounds about legal careers. The group also advises Achieve Minneapolis on creating law-related youth programming. To get involved in the Diversity Pipeline efforts, please attend an upcoming meeting or contact Dana Rindahl at firstname.lastname@example.org of 612-752-6627.
