Women of Color in the Law Forum

On the evening of August 28th, please join us at the Hennepin Theater Trust (900 Hennepin Avenue) for an event focused on women of color, building community and lifting each other up.

This event is a collaboration between Twin Cities Diversity in Practice, Minnesota Women Lawyers, Hmong American Bar Association, MN American Indian Bar Association, MN Asian Pacific American Bar Association, MN Association of Black Lawyers, MN Hispanic Bar Association, and the MN Lavender Bar Association. We welcome women, gender non-binary, transgender people and allies to join us.


This August 28th event has been coordinated in follow-up to the successful Annual Women of Color in the Law Forum, which has been held each winter for the past 5 years. Inspired by the leadership of Loan Huynh, a Shareholder at Fredrikson & Byron, P.A. and Cynthia Lee, Counsel at Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, who are the founders of the Annual Women of Color in the Law Forum, this subsequent event has been coordinated to provide another opportunity for the community to come together on an important topic of interest. Look for more information about the Annual Women of Color in the Law Forum to be scheduled later this Fall/Winter.

1.5 Elimination of Bias CLE credits have been applied for (CODE: 277590).


This event is free. Feel free to circulate the invitation below to colleagues and friends.

Registration:      3:30 p.m.
Program:            4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Reception:         5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
