About Us

Meet Our Leadership. Our dedicated Board of Directors works tirelessly to make authentic change happen and is committed to continuous improvement of LCD’s messaging and programs. Their leadership, time and talents are at the forefront of our efforts and accomplishments. They are supported by a dedicated staff.

 
OUR HISTORY

The Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity (LCD) was formed in 2003 as The Connecticut Lawyers Group by concerned lawyers to answer the call to unite the resources, energy and commitment of the region’s leading corporations, public sector entities, law firms, law schools and state bar associations to advance diversity in the legal profession.  Our current challenge is to increase the recruitment, retention and promotion of lawyers of color and other diverse individuals, not only as good social policy but also as good business practice.
