Diversity Action Plan
The NJSBA’s Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan lays out a clear road map for the NJSBA and the profession. It specifically calls on the leadership of the 18,000-member organization to:
- Become engaged in the necessary work to be done in the area of diversity and inclusion for sustainable outcomes, such as increasing the numbers of diverse lawyers actively involved in bar activities. The plan calls for training on diversity and enhancing membership recruiting efforts to attract and retain underrepresented groups.
- Lead the New Jersey legal profession by example by following the action plan within our organization.
- Increase and strengthen our external initiatives in the legal community, for example pipeline programs and community outreach.
