2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. The intent of the Civil Rights Act was to end segregation in schools and public places and to prohibit discrimination in various forums on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. It is considered one of the crowning legislative achievements of the civil rights movement….but how far have we come in 50 years?

Edwards Wildman is pleased to host a candid discussion among two prominent women lawyers—Paulette Brown and Ruth Ellen Fitch—who will discuss their personal experiences, challenges and triumphs during the past 50 years and share how they have dedicated their professional careers to fostering a society of inclusion.
