On July 11 Adair Burroughs was recognized for her service as chairperson during the Diversity Committee meeting.
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the South Carolina Bar Diversity Committee! This 30-member committee, launched in July 2017, has hit the ground running and shows no signs of slowing.
From highlighting diversity efforts with our Diversity Spotlight Series, to bringing national experts to the Bar Convention to get real about historical discrimination and where we are as a profession, to providing resources for attorneys and law firms on our webpage, we are working hard to fulfill our mission: to promote full and meaningful participation in the legal profession in South Carolina by people of diverse backgrounds.
Have ideas? A story to tell? Context for our work? Please let us know. We need the full diversity of perspectives present in the South Carolina Bar to inform and guide our work. We need to know about your experience and our blind spots. With your help, we can make the South Carolina Bar an even stronger, more inclusive and more diverse community.
