Diversity Committee

The Washington State Bar Association’s Diversity Committee is dedicated to implementing WSBA’s Diversity and Inclusion Plan. The committee's work promotes historically underrepresented groups to enter, remain, thrive, and lead in the profession of law. The committee does this through collaborative relationships and community building activities that highlight the numerous societal benefits of a diverse law profession.

Help advance WSBA's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession. Learn more about joining the WSBA Diversity Committee by emailing diversity@wsba.org.
