For Immediate Release: (Chicago, IL): June 3, 2020: The International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) issues a statement on Diversity and Inclusion:
"We are living in a world of fear and anger right now. ILTA intends to be part of the solution.
ILTA fully supports our members, partners, and colleagues who unite firmly and non-violently against hatred and intolerance. Our core values proudly affirm our commitment to mutual respect and diversity and inclusion; our behavior demonstrates our dedication to mutual respect and diversity and inclusion.
ILTA is and always has been a safe place for education and peer support, operating in an environment that cherishes the free exchange of ideas.
For ILTAns who wish to have a focused conversation around diversity and inclusion, we are now offering an open forum on the ILTA Communities of Interest platform. We want our actions to speak louder than words and both lead and support positive change."
The International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) serves the professional needs of more than 24,000 international legal technology professionals and their organizations. Our core values—respect, commitment to members, sharing of information and promoting lifelong learning—drive all we do to support the peer-driven organization that is ILTA. ILTA demonstrates excellence throughout 5 main areas of our organization: Membership, Events, Business Partnerships, Marketing and Publications, and Technology/IT/Operations. Since its founding in 1980, the association’s focus is to achieve results for our membership and the legal technology profession at large. Much of the value we provide as an association occurs through the coordinated efforts with our global volunteer membership teams.
