The Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity (LCD), celebrated its 15 Year Anniversary on Thursday, May 23 at the Pratt & Whitney, Hangar Museum in East Hartford, CT. LCD was formed in 2003 by concerned lawyers to answer the call to advance diversity in Connecticut’s legal community.
LCD told its "story" to over 150 individuals across its participating member organizations and achieved its goal that evening by bringing Connecticut’s legal community together to celebrate 15 years of uniting the resources, energy and commitment of the region’s leading law firms, corporate law offices, public sector entities, law schools and state wide affinity bar associations in the joint mission of making Connecticut and Western Massachusetts a more attractive place for lawyers of color to live, practice law and find satisfying professional opportunities.

Edwin Archer Randolph Award Recipient
Presenting our very own Executive Director, Carolyn Golden Hebsgaard, with the Edwin Archer Randolph award was a true highlight. We could think of no one more deserving than Carolyn, as she keeps LCD going. We are forever grateful for your hard work, dedication, passion and commitment to fostering an inclusive, more attractive place for lawyers of color to live, practice law and find satisfying professional opportunities.
