Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Collaborative

Diversity Equity and Inclusion Collaborative Logo

In 2019, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Summit, a first-of-its-kind convening, gathered organizations representing judges and practitioners within the judiciary and legal profession. The inaugural DEI Summit was supported by the Jessie Ball duPont Fund and facilitated by The Raben Group.

The collaborative meets quarterly and collectively determines where the largest gaps and opportunities to diversify the judicial and legal profession.

The NCJFCJ released a video establishing the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the judiciary.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Collaborative is to identify, design and implement coordinated actions between its member organizations. These actions seek to build a diverse, inclusive, and culturally competent bench, legal profession, court management and staff, dispute resolution and mental health professionals, and all contributors to court operations, to improve and deliver new, effective, and culturally relevant court outcomes for the communities that we serve.
