I'm Michelle Silverthorn, the Founder & CEO of Inclusion Nation. I'm a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School and a member of the New York bar. I started my career in law firms then moved to the Illinois Supreme Court where I trained thousands of lawyers - in-person and online - on diversity, bias, allyship, and belonging.

When you travel across a state as diverse as Illinois, you meet lawyers of all kinds. Solo practitioners, small firms, large firms, government workers, non-profit leaders. I spent years honing my skills to ensure I could speak about diversity and inclusion to all of them. The lessons I learned from those experiences are the ones I share with you here.

Whether you enroll your students in one or both of the courses, my hope is that the skills they learn will lead each law student to build a legal profession centered on inclusion and equity, and leave a legacy of justice for the generations of lawyers who follow.

Michelle is one of the most compelling DEI educators I have ever experienced, and her words have had a powerful and enduring impact on my life. She is a gifted storyteller who has a unique way of personalizing her own experiences and those of marginalized people, and it leads to greater empathy and compassion in her audience ... She is truly one of a kind.
