The National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) advocates for and encourages diversity, equity, and inclusion within the paralegal profession. We recognize that to continually be a “preeminent resource for individual and professional success,” we must build on and derive strength from inclusion, equity, diversity, and those initiatives that promote it. NALA encourages and fosters a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment within the association and its affiliated associations, as well as the law firms, corporations, legal service providers, and the paralegal community our members and peers support. NALA strives to partner with affiliated associations and other professional legal organizations to advance and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. NALA welcomes members from all backgrounds and encourages connections within our diverse membership.

Strength through diversity includes all individuals regardless of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, medical condition, military or veteran status, and political affiliation.

NALA welcomes your comments and thoughts, and seeks your input regarding how to better achieve greater diversity within our association, our affiliated associations, and the paralegal profession as a whole. Please contact Vanessa Finley, CEO with any feedback.
