CDLA's Diversity Statement

The Colorado Defense Lawyers Association has the goal of promoting diversity within the legal community and assisting charitable organizations with a relation to the civil defense community. Charity, outreach and diversity must be viewed as a perpetual practice rather than reaching certain numerical markers. Charity, outreach and diversity efforts require sustained commitment, leadership, innovation and financial support. Through the Colorado Defense Lawyers Association Foundation ("Foundation"), we are committed to leveraging our collective efforts through partnerships and alliances in order to foster leadership, awareness and communications enabling an environment of good will and inclusiveness within our Association membership. We also are committed to using the Foundation to advance charitable interests or organizations with a relation to the civil defense community, as determined by the Foundation.
