NACDL is committed to developing a membership that is representative of the diversity of gender, race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, religion, age, disability and other backgrounds found in society, the criminal defense bar and the legal community. In an effort to strengthen and grow our membership among women practitioners and thereby to strengthen and grow the quality of our organization, NACDL will strive to provide opportunities for programming, events and initiatives that focus upon issues of import to women. With such programming, events, and initiatives, NACDL may encourage and feature outreach, marketing, speakers, and content designed to be of particular interest to women practitioners. Equally in keeping with NACDL’s commitment to equality, programming will never exclude any person from participating based upon their gender, race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, religion, age, disability or other characteristics protected by law, nor will NACDL support programs that exclude on any of those bases.
