Joint Center Speaks to Yale Law Students

On April 5, Don Bell, Director of the Black Talent Initiative, spoke to Yale law students about the importance of increasing political inclusion and diversity. He highlighted the Joint Center’s past efforts in this area and upcoming initiatives.

Don also shared successful strategies carried out by the Joint Center that led to major wins such as increasing the number of Senate staffers of color, the adoption of the “Rooney Rule” for staff hiring by Senate Democrats, and the public education effort that led Senator Doug Jones to hire Dana Gresham, one of only three African American Senate Chiefs of Staff.
