Getting our juries to reflect our diverse population so people are judged by their peers has been a struggle for many states.  This panel will discuss how a jury selection process impacts the goal of achieving a diverse panel and what specific factors have stood in the way of that goal or have helped achieve a more inclusive jury.  Specific jury engagement practices that can enhance the inclusion of eligible members from diverse communities will be addressed.
