About us

Inclusion at Work is a blog that seeks to take a comprehensive look at issues that influence our profession’s advancement in diversity and inclusion. It will identify and critique barriers to inclusion, expand how we define “diversity” and advance a notion of how law and society interact. It will examine how systems of oppression intersect to produce the barriers to inclusion that we seek to dismantle.

This blog arose out of the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession, a non-profit organization based in Chicago, Illinois.
