September 24, 2021
Maslon is pleased to announce that Partners Joe Ceronsky and Amy Swedberg and attorney Clayton Carlson have earned the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice Racial Equity Certification.
The Minnesota Racial Equity Challenge is a six-month, in-depth course to learn more about the people who live in Minnesota, the history of racism in this state, the racial inequities that currently exist in our state and their origins, and what we can do to eliminate these racial inequities. During the course, participants explore readings, podcasts, and other materials and gather twice a month for a guided discussion to process the readings and materials. The course syllabus may be viewed here. A total of 47 participants earned the certification.
"The course challenged us all to dig into the issues past our comfort zone and realize the work that needs to be done, and it provided great strategies for doing so," said Partner Joe Ceronsky. "Along with continuing to educate myself, I feel a responsibility to take more action to make change, and appreciate Maslon's support and engagement across all such efforts."
Twin Cities Diversity in Practice is a nonprofit association of more than 60 law firms and corporate legal departments who share a vision to create a vibrant and inclusive legal community and a mission to strengthen the efforts of member organizations to attract, recruit, advance, and retain attorneys of color. Maslon is proud to be an active member.
