Dear Friends: CaliforniaALL is the result of a gap in the diversity efforts by the legal and financial services professions. There was a huge need for an overarching entity that would break down the silos of many different organizations and individuals doing diversity educational pipeline work. This entity would find best practices and bring stakeholders together to build coalitions for sharing resources and creating innovative models to build extended educational pipelines. Thus, the birth of CaliforniaALL. CaliforniaALL's journey since its inception on a napkin in April 2007 has been very gratifying for me. Since then, a firm foundation has been put in place with a committed and engaged board. Many of you have been instrumental in helping us to fulfill our vision and mission for California's students. I thank all of you for the inspiration and encouragement in building this new organization. It is time for me to pass the gavel to the next leader to take CaliforniaALL to the next level. The work of enhancing the success of our students from preschool to the professions will continue. It will take all of us in collaboration to deliver a workforce and leadership that is competent, successful and diverse. CaliforniaALL lives on.
