Tonight, Higgs Fletcher & Mack will help sponsor the San Diego County Bar Association’s (SDCBA) Dialogue on Diversity event at the organization’s conference center.

Beginning at 5:30 P.M., the annual program will highlight SDCBA’s commitment to diversity and foster a dialogue on a variety of issues in the community. In addition, attendees will hear from Peggy Nagae, an expert on diversity & inclusion matters including leadership, cultural competency, communication and organizational change. A reception will follow at the Kelvin Restaurant located at the Renaissance Hotel.

“We truly understand the importance of diversity. Higgs was one of the first law firms in San Diego to sign the SDCBAs Diversity Pledge in 2007. We’re also an active participant in the organization’s summer diversity fellowship program and provide diversity scholarships annually to a student at the University of San Diego School of Law and California Western School of Law,” said Higgs Fletcher & Mack’s Executive Director, Henry Angelino.

Co-presenters for the event include: Earl B. Gilliam Bar Association, Filipino American Lawyers of San Diego, Iranian American Bar Association of San Diego, Korean American Bar Association, Lawyers Club of San Diego, Native American Lawyers Association, Pan Asian Lawyers of San Diego, San Diego Chinese Attorneys Association, San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, South Asian Bar Association and the Tom Homann LGBT Law Association.

Angelino continued, “I’m proud of the commitment to diversity we’ve upheld not only within the firm, but throughout the legal community. It’s important for us to support this event and we’re excited for an evening of education and networking.”
