Stephanie Scharf Completes Service as an Advisor to ABA Diversity and Inclusion 360 Commission

Stephanie Scharf just completed her service as an Advisor to the ABA Diversity and Inclusion 360 Commission, a special ABA Presidential Commission formed by 2015-2016 President Paulette Brown.  The Commission conducted a comprehensive review of where the legal profession stands on diversity and inclusion and developed a broad, sustainable plan for the future.  Among the activities completed by the Commission were a model diversity survey for use by corporations to gather uniform and consistent diversity data from law firms;   implicit bias videos and a toolkit;  continuing legal education policies; and a diversity and inclusion web portal.   Ms. Scharf has “enormous admiration for the work of the Commission, which was unusual for its breadth and concrete results within a short one year period.”  More about the Commission and its rich array of tools, policies and solutions can be found at its website, www.americanbar.org
