Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

iba-diversity-logo.jpgThe IndyBar Diversity Job Fair is enjoying the national spotlight as a recipient of the 2014 Partnership Award from the American Bar Association (ABA). The fair was selected for the award in early June; IndyBar representatives will accept the award during the ABA’s Annual Meeting in Boston this August.

The ABA Partnership Awards Program salutes bar association projects directed at increasing the participation and advancement of lawyers of color as well as other underrepresented constituents: attorneys with disabilities, women attorneys and those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. This annual awards program is open to all bar associations that can demonstrate how their efforts nurture diversity in the legal community.

The selection committee noted the IndyBar Diversity Job Fair’s success in building upon an existing model and improving it by involving and showcasing the Indianapolis community.
