Join DAG

DAG works on a wide range of diversity initiatives, and new members and ideas are always welcome to join. We hold monthly calls to discuss diversity initiatives which are spearheaded by DAG subcommittees.

Shannon N. Proctor, DAG Chair


The ABA-IPL Section created the Diversity Action Group (DAG) to support and advance diversity-related initiatives within the intellectual property bar, to foster the recruitment into and advancement within the profession of diverse individuals, to reach out to individuals who represent diversity within the profession concerning the benefits of Section membership, to secure the active participation of diverse speakers and authors for Section programs and publications, and to provide diverse lawyers with clear pathways to attain leadership roles.



Each of our subcommittees is tasked with specific responsibilities within the larger mission of the Group. Participating in a subcommittee is a great chance to get involved with DAG.
