LAW FIRM DIVERSITY
The South Asian Bar Association of Austin along with the Austin Black Lawyers Association, Travis County Women Lawyers Association, the Austin Asian American Bar Association, the Hispanic Bar Association of Austin and the Austin LGBT Bar Association jointly presented the results of the 2017 Austin Law Firm Diversity Report Card on August 14th, 2018 at a wonderful event hosted by Foley Gardere.
This year's report card and press release are linked below.:
““SABAA is once again pleased to be a participant in the Diversity Report Card as this is the only data available to evaluate diversity and inclusion among South Asian members of our local Bar. The 2017 Report Card reveals that there are only four major law firms in Austin that employ South Asian attorneys; and of this small group, only two of these attorneys are Partners. We encourage all members of our legal community to engage in diverse recruitment and to make thoughtful and inclusive retention decisions so we can continue to improve and attract the brightest legal minds in our fair city. SABAA is committed to furthering these goals alongside our fellow affinity bar organizations and thanks the Diversity Report Card Committee for its unwavering contribution to the Bar.”
