The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division has released its first video testimonial for its web and social media campaign to help raise awareness of a diverse community of young attorneys. The #YLDisMe campaign seeks to highlight successful attorneys from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, orientations, physical appearances, and physical abilities. The goal of #YLDisMe is to reshape the image of what an attorney “should” look like in the eyes of YLD members, The Florida Bar, and the public. Throughout the year the YLD will feature social media posts and video testimonials by YLD members from various under-represented groups, as well as diversity and inclusion webinars. We invite you to share your story and events promoting inclusion and equality on social media using the hashtag #YLDisMe.
