The Tarrant County Bar Association’s Diversity Committee will host a discussion titled “Is Your Diversity & Inclusion Program Falling Short?” from noon to 1 p.m. on April 29.

Guest speakers Kenya Woodruff, a partner in and deputy general counsel to Katten Muchin Rosenman, and Brian Newby, managing partner in Cantey Hanger, will lead the discussion on measuring the effectiveness of diversity and inclusion in addressing racism and creating more equitable workplaces. Barriers to diversity and inclusion programs will also be discussed.

The panel will also explore affirmative action and other minority recruitment and promotion efforts in the profession and in education.

The program is part of the Tarrant County Bar’s SIDE* (Striving for Inclusion, Diversity and Equity inside the Bar) Bar Conversation Series.

The event is co-hosted by the L. Clifford Davis Legal Association and Black Women Lawyers Association.
