What the Community is
"...you have been doing everything right since you took the helm of CLI. So grateful for your passion, insights and experience!" - Rolf Asphaug. former RTD General Counsel and CLI Board Member
"When CLI offered a bundle option for all 12 CLE D&I videos, it was a no brainer for me... Having attended CLI’s Summit, I know the quality of the speakers and relevancy of the topics to our attorneys and staff. - Misae Nishikura, Holland & Hart Director of Recruitment & Professional Development
“I want to add my encouragement as well. The Swafia Ames presentation was very good. I thought the discussion of sponsors and allies was particularly instructive. More importantly, it was clear that our Sara and Swafia have history and didn’t mind sharing their personal experiences with the rest of us. There were lots of nuances in their authentic conversation that brought a depth to the presentation that I really enjoyed. I look forward to tomorrow’s presentation.” - Skip Gray, CLI Board Member
“The virtual Summit was fantastic, and I learned so much from all the speakers. I look forward to viewing Arin’s keynote. You and Sara have done wonders under normal circumstances, but under Covid your work is unbelievable.” - John Baker, CLI Board Member
“Thank you for all that you do. Sending a reminder about the day's program is extremely helpful. Today's program was another wonderful presentation. You folks have outdone yourselves this year. This is one of the best programs that CLI has ever presented. All of the presenters have been all-stars.” - Judge Alfred Harrell, CLI Member
“All I can say is, “wow”. Today’s keynote address and program was incredible and something all our lawyers, especially our “opportunity givers,” need to hear. I cannot recommend Monday, Tuesday and today’s programs enough to your organizations. In adding my kudos and huge thanks to Sara and SJ, I want to put it on the record that not only was the virtual Summit flawlessly executed by Sara, SJ and the Fresh Events team, but the content was of the highest and most relevant caliber and value, higher than I recall in the last many years. I couldn’t be more proud to serve on this Board!” - Phyllis Wan, Holland & Hart Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, CLI Board Chair Elect
