KBA Diversity Program

23 Feb 2019 10:07 AM | Kathi McKeown (Administrator)


The Kentucky Bar Association cordially invites you to participate in the third biennial Diversity and Inclusion Summit on Friday, March 22, 2019, at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center.

Thanks to the hard work of our Diversity and Inclusion Summit Chairs Roula Allouch and Ken Gish, and their planning committee, we are fortunate to have attracted an outstanding lineup of distinguished and learned professionals to address the summit. We encourage your participation in this significant event. We look forward to working with attorneys across the state, as we explore the full meaning of diversity and its relationship to the rule of law.

Diversity brings a wide range of viewpoints to any situation, and that’s good for the legal profession, for the pursuit of justice, and for communities throughout the Commonwealth and beyond. Through this summit, we hope to provide: 

  • practical ideas for the creation of diversity and inclusion programs;
  • assist management and other administrators with handling of diversity issues;
  • and empower attorneys from diverse backgrounds to work through these same issues to become successful contributors in their place of employment.


The Summit will also seek to encourage young people from diverse backgrounds to become lawyers and practice law in Kentucky. In conjunction with the Summit, on Thursday, March 21, 2019, we are hosting a pipeline program that will bring high school students from diverse backgrounds to Covington to learn more about the legal profession.
