Do I qualify for diversity opportunities? (January 3, 2011 Edition)
Posted By Kimberly Thomas, Jan 10, 2011
"Diversity" encompasses more than race and ethnicity. Many diversity programs also seek individuals based on disability, socio-economic disadvantage (e.g. first generation college and/or law school graduate), gender identification, and sexual orientation. Due to underrepresentation of women in the profession, many programs are open to all female applicants. Read the application criteria carefully before you disqualify yourself from something for which you may be eligible.
