Building a More Inclusive Judiciary
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Madam for America and the Association for Women Lawyers of Greater Kansas City (AWL) as we present this timely CLE program. Our panelists will discuss their paths to the bench and share valuable lessons they’ve learned, as women and women of color, about the highly competitive appointment or election process, how bias impacts the makeup of the bench, how bias impacts the administration of justice, what improvements they’ve seen to diversity and inclusion on the bench and the administration of justice and what changes are still needed. Following the hour-long panel discussion, participants will join breakout rooms with individual panelists to enjoy a small group discussion with one of the judges in attendance.
