Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer and Senior Partner Paulette Brown will serve as a panelist during the ABA International Law Section's Global Women Series on June 15-17, 2021. Paulette's panel will discuss Global Women & Juneteenth: 156 Years On - Reflections on Obstacles to Emancipation on June 15 at 12pm ET.
This event brings together four exceptional leaders – all African American women whose achievements in and of themselves are worthy of commemorating. Through their ongoing work, all continue to challenge this country to live up to our national ideals of liberty and equal justice for all, without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, gender, national origin, or any other distinction. They will reflect on the “state of the Union” – and ways for African American women to move forward.
Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement, for planning the future. Its growing popularity signifies a level of maturity and dignity in America long overdue.
In cities across the country, people of all races, nationalities and religions are joining hands to truthfully acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues to influence our society today. Sensitized to the conditions and experiences of others, only then can we make significant and lasting improvements in our society.
