Stephanie Scharf, just completed her service as an Advisor to the ABA Diversity and Inclusion 360 Commission, a special ABA Presidential Commission formed by 2015-2016 President Paulette Brown. The Commission conducted a comprehensive review of where the legal profession stands on diversity and inclusion and developed a broad, sustainable plan for the future. Among the activities completed by the Commission were a model diversity survey for use by corporations to gather uniform and consistent diversity data from law firms; implicit bias videos and a toolkit; continuing legal education policies; and a diversity and inclusion web portal. Ms. Scharf has “enormous admiration for the work of the Commission, which was unusual for its breadth and concrete results within a short one year period.” More about the Commission and its rich array of tools, policies and solutions can be found at its website, www.americanbar.org.
