IDGC is seeking volunteers to participate in the Measurement Ad Hoc Committee which seeks to assist legal employers in responding to or looking at diversity measurements. This will be somewhat of a follow up to past Minority Report Card efforts, and any volunteers with an interest or prior experience in the report card is particularly encouraged to volunteer. Please email Jeannie Bohlman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating on behalf of WWL.
