Our committee encourages recruitment and retention of traditionally under-represented groups, including persons of color, women, the LGBTQ community, gender, and people with disabilities. Through scholarships, outreach, and educational programs, the committee looks to diverse communities for expanding CELA's membership, training new leaders within the plaintiffs' employment bar, and serving the community. The committee serves as a resource for implementation of CELA's formal diversity policy.
