Abstract

Any discussion about diversity must first begin with what we understand that concept to mean. In the vernacular, diversity usually connotes differences in race and gender. But in my view, we need to think much more broadly than that. Diversity certainly encompasses those characteristics, but it also embraces divergent ethnic backgrounds, languages, religion, political views, life and professional experiences, and geographic areas — all of the features that make up the great mix of the American population.

Keywords: diversity, Constitutional Convention, federal judiciary
