Join LAUNCH for Lawyers. Real diversity education for real diversity change.

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 take one course, or you take all four, my hope is that you use the skills you learn in these courses to build a 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.
