Dispute Resolution Section Diversity Gala

Dispute Resolution Section Diversity Gala



Come celebrate diversity and inclusion with the Dispute Resolution Section as we continue our initiative focused on unique programing aimed at improving diversity within the Section and within the practice of New York dispute resolution. The Section is committed to engaging diverse practitioners in the work of the Section, strengthening the Section’s demographic, and improving the dispute resolution culture in the State of New York and beyond.

The Dispute Resolution Section Diversity Gala is a free event (registration required), with food, drinks, and entertainment to be provided. There will also be an opportunity to view one floor of the museum at the start of the program and its breathtaking exhibits. You do NOT have to be a member of NYSBA to attend. Please find more information about the New Museum here.
