BBA & SJC Standing Committee on Lawyer Well-Being Collaborate on Affinity Bar Town Halls

The Boston Bar Association is pleased to collaborate with the SJC Standing Committee on Lawyer Well-Being to support a series of Affinity Bar Town Halls engaging with members of the legal community in candid discussions on well-being challenges.

The SJC Committee’s July 2019 Report identified the need for “[a] strong and on-going commitment to enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion in all our practices to improve our individual and collective well-being.” As a way to foster conversation on that topic, the SJC Committee is hosting a series of Town Hall style meetings with individual Affinity Bar Associations to discuss specific well-being challenges for their communities and ideas for change. We want to thank the Affinity Bar Associations – listed below – that have already hosted Town Halls in the pursuit of greater well-being for lawyers and legal professionals throughout the Commonwealth. We encourage interested members to reach out to Heidi Alexander at heidi@lawyerwellbeingma.org for more information.
