Ten years ago The Association of Law Firm Diversity Professionals (ALFDP) was formed. Around 30 committed diversity and inclusion professionals from law firms across the US established ALFDP for the organization to “ act as a catalyst for the advancement of diversity in the legal profession through our collective knowledge, vision, expertise and advocacy in the area of law firm diversity.” A decade later, ALFDP has grown to more than 140 members, representing 96 law firms located in 30 cities across 22 states.
ALFDP remains committed to its mission today as fervently as it did a decade ago. I am convinced ALFDP and its members will continue to provide valuable D&I expertise to our respective law firms and the profession during the next ten years.
Happy New Year!
ALFDP Board of Directors
