Connecticut Bar Foundation Diversity Policy

 

The Connecticut Bar Foundation is committed to diversity and inclusion in its Board of Directors, officers, committees, James W. Cooper Fellows, and staff, and in the focus, subject matter, and participation of its programs, including symposia, colloquia, and roundtables. Diversity is an inclusive concept encompassing race, color, religious creed, age, marital status, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, and intellectual, mental or physical disability.

We are a richer and more effective organization because of diversity and inclusion, as it increases our organization's strengths, capabilities, and adaptability. Through increased diversity and inclusion, our organization can more effectively accomplish our mission with the varied perspectives, experiences, knowledge, information, and understanding inherent in a diverse and inclusive relationship.
