Rob Smith, a doctoral student in the Joint Doctoral Program at Claremont Graduate University and San Diego State in Education, is conducting a study that focuses on women of color attorneys. The aim of the study is to describe women of color attorneys’ experiences with gendered racism in law school and the workplace to generate understandings of potential support factors

Rob invites women of color attorneys to participate in one-time, virtual interviews regarding your experience navigating law school and as a practicing attorney. This 60-minute interview is voluntary and confidential and would take place via Zoom.

Please see the attachment and email Rob directly at [email protected] if you are interested in being interviewed or if you have questions. Thanks in advance for forwarding to your members and networks.
