Attorneys of color continue to be underrepresented in the legal profession. How can we grow the diversity pipeline within professional services — notably legal services? What is the role of our community, our law schools, and Corporate America in furthering diversity and inclusion? 

Callie Crossley, host of WGBH's Under the Radar, will moderate this panel discussion, which will focus on answering the above questions and delve deeply into addressing how attorneys of color can be integrated into the legal community.
