Committee for Diversity
The primary goals of the Washington State Bar Association Committee for Diversity (CFD) are to increase diversity within the membership and leadership of the WSBA; to promote opportunities for appointment or election of diverse members to the bench; to support and encourage opportunities for minority attorneys; to aggressively pursue employment opportunities for minorities; and to raise awareness of the benefits of diversity.
The Committee for Diversity is organized into four Subcommittees: Communication, Outreach, Retention, and Education (CORE). Each Subcommittee is encouraged to come up with initiatives that support the mission.
