Some call them TED Talks. At PSALA, we call them BOLD Bites – a selection of mini-presentations designed to spark conversation about the legal industry.
Heard about ALA? Big name change just revealed – we’re now members of LawVantage! What else is new in ALA and the legal industry? Let’s have a drink and talk about that.
Attendance is complimentary to all PSALA Members, Business Partners, and guests. Please visit our website, psala.org for additional information and to register (so we can be sure to have enough adult beverages!), but feel free to just show up if spontaneous works best for you!

“What do Professionalism, Civility, & Retention have to do with Diversity & Inclusion and the Future of the Legal Profession?”
Thursday, July 16, 2015
8:00 am — 11:30 am
Sandra S. Yamate
Chief Executive Officer,
The Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession
Past efforts to increase diversity in the legal profession have been sincere but not inclusive enough…not ambitious enough…not robust enough. The Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession is driving real progress through comprehensive outreach and original programming to replace barriers with bridges between legal, judicial, professional, educational, and governmental institutes. Market Intervention is Necessary for Real Change. Our work begins now, with a simple goal: Fewer walls, more doors. Please join Sandra Yamate, Esq. and other leaders in the legal community for a presentation and interactive discussion aimed at reducing walls and opening doors.
More details will follow in a formal invitation in the next few weeks.
Our annual Business Meeting is approaching!
When: Wednesday, June 24th from Noon to 1 pm
Where: Lane Powell, 1420 5th Ave #4200 Seattle, WA 98101 42nd Floor Conference room – behind the reception desk.
