The Next Gen Leadership: Advancing Lawyers of Color advisory board members met at the end of 2018 to chart the future direction of the initiative’s digital content. The advisory board determined three ideal outcomes:

  •        To amplify the voices of minority attorneys and showcase successes;
  •        To give young lawyers access to diverse attorneys who have succeeded; and
  •        To increase the retention of diverse attorneys among legal employers.

To do this, the advisory board committed to the following deliverables:

  •        Easy-to-digest tips on networking, communicating value, and how to be a business advisor that board members have used to advance their careers;
  •        Written articles on the steps they take to execute these tips; and
  •        Regular live “Ask-a-Mentor” sessions open to all lawyers of color to provide access to successful ethnic minority attorneys.
