Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Indianapolis Legal Community

The Indianapolis Bar Association recognizes that equality, diversity and inclusion impact all aspects of work among members of the IndyBar, within the practice of law and within the communities where we live and work. The association, through its actions and those of its members, seeks to be instrumental in creating a more equitable, diverse and inclusive society.  

The Indianapolis Bar Association Commission on Racial Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Indianapolis Legal Community was formed in July 2020 and quickly began its work to address, dismantle and transform systemically problematic policies, structures and biases throughout the IndyBar.


Phase One Report and Goals
The commission crafted a report and recommendations, which include phase one goals recently approved by the association’s Board of Directors. These phase one goals focus on making immediate, concrete changes within the IndyBar and building IndyBar’s capacity to lead a more broad-based commission in phase two and beyond that will address similar issues in the Indianapolis legal community as a whole.
