Access the Diversity Directory on its New Online Platform

The ABA Diversity Speakers & Authors Directory provides a central resource for finding diverse speakers, authors, and other contributors for meetings, educational programs, publications, and more. The directory helps advance ABA Goal III, enhancing diversity in ABA and other programming and publications.

Eligible participants (both ABA and non-ABA members) from diverse backgrounds (women, people of color/racial and ethnic demographic groups, LGBTQ+ individuals, and persons with disabilities) can create a profile and appear in the directory. To create or modify a directory profile, go to My ABA Profile and click on "demographics." 

Only ABA members and staff can access and search the directory.
