Norton Rose Fulbright's efforts to advance racial equity are being recognized nationally.
The firm has been named a finalist in the category of "Innovations in Diversity and Inclusion" for ALM/The American Lawyer's "Legalweek Leaders in Tech Law Awards 2022."
The award honors law firms for "innovation in the legal technology sector and for working on precedent-setting, game-changing projects and initiatives" within the US. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on February 2, 2022.
Norton Rose Fulbright is one of six finalists in the category, a clear indication of the firm's continued commitment to strengthen diversity. The selection is based on a comprehensive submission highlighting the firm's recent efforts to champion social justice, including the creation of the Racial Equity Council, with a mission to improve the experience of black personnel, and the selection of championing social justice as the 2021 Global Charitable Initiative, a program focused on one cause annually through fundraising, pro bono and volunteering efforts.
