The National Native American Bar Association (NNABA), in conjunction with the research and consulting firm Nextions, has embarked upon a comprehensive research study designed to explore the perspectives and experiences of Native American attorneys. This research will result in the first-of-its-kind study, and the findings from this study will be used to develop educational materials and programming that will help improve the retention and advancement of Native American attorneys in every corner of the legal profession.
A secure and confidential survey has been distributed and can be taken by any attorney that identifies as American Indian/Native Alaskan. If you have already filled out the survey, we thank you for your time! If you have not yet filled out the survey, please take the time to do so as soon as possible. The survey can be taken at the link below and will be closing on April 30th, 2014. We need your voice!
If you would like the convenience of completing the above survey via telephone, you may do so in one of two ways:

    *   By contacting Nextions (312-922-0226) any Wednesday or Friday through the end of April between 10:00am-4:00pm CDT to be directed to someone who will facilitate the delivery and completion of the survey. Telephone surveys are completely confidential and should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete.
    *   By contacting Nextions (312-922-0226) or Nextions' lead research associate, Jessica Shoemaker (jessica at nextions.com<mailto:jessica at nextions.com>) to schedule a telephone survey for any time, including nights and weekends. While scheduling a specific time to participate in a telephone survey will necessitate the need for you to share your contact information, your survey responses will remain completely confidential.
Nextions will also be conducting a series of individual telephone interviews. The goal of the interviews is to deepen our understanding of the survey data by adding a qualitative component to an already rich body of information. Interviews will take no longer than 30 minutes and are absolutely and completely confidential. To schedule an interview, please forward your name, contact info and 2-3 preferred interview times to Jessica Shoemaker (jessica at nextions.com<mailto:jessica at nextions.com> | 312-922-0226).
Respondents are encouraged to participate in both the survey and interview process. If you have questions about either the survey or the interview process, please do not hesitate to reach out to Nextions (Jessica at nextions.com<mailto:Jessica at nextions.com> | 312.922.0226) or the National Native American Bar Association (adminassistant at nativeamericanbar.org<mailto:adminassistant at nativeamericanbar.org>). Thank you in advance for your thoughtful participation!
