Previous Honoree Quotes:

As one of Minnesota Lawyer’s 2017 Diversity & Inclusion honorees, Justice Alan Page, said then, “We can’t sit and wait. We have to do it. We’re not doing this to benefit only minorities. We all benefit from diversity.”

 “This Award has come to symbolize what so many Minnesota lawyers value in the diversity of our practice.” – Honoree Gloria Stamps-Smith, 2018

“For me, this award confirms that members of the broader legal community endorse and support current efforts to diversify the profession.”  – Honoree Faith Jackson, 2018

We know that being part of a diverse culture is important to us, to our judicial system and to our clients. We also know that such a culture doesn’t just happen—it must be watered and nurtured.
