One of ALA’s goals is to increase diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the Association, in the legal management community and in all legal service organizations.
As a result, ALA has created leadership panels, educational resources, tool kits, guides and programs - designed to increase awareness of and sensitivity to the differences among our workforce and to advance the concepts of inclusiveness and acceptance.
Few areas in the United States are as diverse as South Florida. As a gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean, our community is home to a multi-lingual, multi-ethnic culture that enriches the daily lives of all of our residents.
The administrators of law firms must be adept at recognizing and capitalizing on the richness found in the diversity of their staff and they must understand that many of their firm's clients have a personal understanding of the economies and cultures of not only the principal nations of Latin America, but also the Caribbean basin. There are an estimated 1,100 multinational headquarter units in Miami, many of which are here for the sole purpose of reaching Latin markets.
