We are incredibly proud to have this episode as part of the launch of the State Bar of New Mexico Equity in Justice Program. The development of the  Equity in Justice Program was recommended in the 2019 Update on the Status of Minorities and Gender in the Legal Profession.

Tune in as Dr. Amanda Parker and Leon Howard, co-chair of the Committee on the Diversity in the Legal Profession have a truly amazing discussion. They interview each other on the new program, equity and inclusion in the profession, what work still needs to be done and how the State Bar Equity in Justice program will help move the profession forward.

Happy Black History Month!
