21-Day Equity and Diversity Habit Building Challenge

Each of us brings different backgrounds and experiences to our profession, which inform our life and our days. This is a challenge for you to learn and expand your knowledge. We  encourage you to take this opportunity to reflect on privilege, power, and how we can be an ally to others. The focus of our challenge is aimed at women, women lawyers, and the specific challenges we face.

Start by downloading this calendar. Nearly every day has several articles, videos, or podcasts. While we encourage you to read them all, we understand that is a big ask! We tried to pick a few options depending on the amount of time you are able to give to the challenge. The three weeks are divided as follows:

  • Week 1 is focused on defining the problem. We encourage you to start the challenge by undertaking one (or several!) implicit bias tests. Then move on to learning about race and defining the problem of racial equity and diversity in America.
  • Week 2 is focused on women, lawyers, and our justice system.
  • Week 3 is focused on actions we can take to combat the problem of a lack of equity and diversity in our communities, and specific actions related to antiracism.

Diversity expert Eddie Moore, Jr. conceived the concept of a 21-day challenge as a way to further understand power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity. Explore the original challenge also, if you'd like, and share it with friends and family.

Whether you read every article or were only able to read a handful, we invite you to register and join us for a Zoom Coffee Break on Thursday, October 22 at 10 a.m. to share reflections and what we have learned during the challenge. We have reached out to the other affinity bar groups and are inviting them to join us also, and we look forward to hosting more events together in the future. When one woman lawyer rises, we all rise, so join us to learn more and help each other along this path.

If you have any questions, please contact Krista LaFave Rosolino.
