The following is a message from Stephanie Shyu, Chair of the Diversity Committee at the University of Pennsylvania Law School:
Penn Law “Diversity in Education” Panel 3/28
The committee is hosting a panel this Thursday, March 28th titled “Diversity in Education” from 4:30 to 6:30. The idea for the event was spurred by a prior law school event at which a speaker asked whether there really are concrete benefits to having diversity in education. We hope that the event will provide a forum for open discussion on the merits of diversity–however it may be defined–both in schools and in the professional field. The panel will feature the diversity chairs of Morgan Lewis and Cozen O’Connor along with two professors from Chicago-Kent Law School and Temple University who have studied the issue.
The first hour and a half will consist of a guided discussion with audience input and the last 30 minutes will be a formal Q&A session. We really want to feature as many viewpoints as possible in the audience to make for a well-rounded exchange of ideas, so we hope you will attend. There will be a reception following the event…
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look forward to seeing you there!
Stephanie J. Shyu
