Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity Mission Statement

The New Jersey Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators (NJALA) is committed to prioritizing and supporting Diversity and Inclusion in and around the New Jersey Area. The NJALA embraces diversity and recognizes that there is great value in the differences of people.  The NJALA promotes an inclusive environment through collaboration that values our talents, skills and experiences.  Our mission is to strengthen legal management professionals to lead through diversity initiatives.   We encourage conversations about acceptance of these issues throughout the legal community.   While we do not have all of the answers, we strive to keep listening to better expand our empathy and knowledge. 

Diversity and Inclusion Team

The NJALA Diversity & Inclusion Team encourages respect, mindfulness and sensitivity. These attributes are used to foster continued growth and education with regard to other cultures and backgrounds as well as any visible or non-visible disabilities. It does not exclude any groups and values individual contributions. The NJALA believes in equality and encourages all to be inclusive and accepting of others, to welcome and celebrate the differences that make us all unique.
