Why is diversity, equity, inclusion, and cultural competency important to you in the
practice of law? Yolanda Lopez: Diversity, equity, inclusion, and cultural competence play a vital role in practicing law. Although these values are not commonly prioritized in the law
school classroom, it is because of them that landmark cases addressing issues that affect our everyday lives, like gender and racial equality, have impacted the evolution of our laws. These values will continue to shape the legal spectrum. The impact starts with the individual and in the firm. A firm that embraces these values contributes to making a difference in the practice of law and offers young, hopeful attorneys a platform to grow and immerse themselves in the ever-changing practice of law.
