Established in 2001 by the Board of Governors, the State Bar Diversity Award recognizes outstanding efforts and significant contributions by a bar association, law firm and an individual attorney in promoting diversity in California's legal profession.

"Our team takes considerable effort in addressing the need to increase diversity within the legal profession, and we are honored to be receiving this award in recognition of our efforts."

The event will also honor retired Justice Carlos Moreno, Karen Nobumoto (former State Bar President) and Ruthe Ashley for their extensive contributions to the diversity pipeline efforts, as well as acknowledging the award recipients for the past 10 years.
