Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Names B&D a Top Performer for 2019
The "Top Performer" designation recognizes those organizations that are most active in LCLD over the course of the year. Organizations receive points for a variety of LCLD-related activities, including participating in any of LCLD’s programs, sending LCLD Fellows to Learning Experiences and Leadership Lunches, or hosting regional networking events.
"LCLD’s programs and initiatives make a difference by connecting allies for diversity and inclusion. Many lawyers at B&D have benefited from their involvement with LCLD as Fellows, Pathfinders, or in other ways, and LCLD is an important element of our overall diversity and inclusion program. We are proud to participate and receive this recognition,” said Nessa Coppinger, B&D’s Diversity & Inclusion Principal and the Firm’s 2019 LCLD Fellow.
B&D is a founding member of LCLD and has sponsored a firm lawyer’s participation in the LCLD Fellows and Pathfinder Programs every year since their inception.
B&D values and strives to demonstrate leadership on diversity and inclusion. We are Mansfield Plus Certified and a recipient of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s George B. Vashon Innovator Award and Thomas L. Sager Award. Working together with our clients, we develop, maintain, and participate in diversity and inclusion initiatives involving lawyers and staff firmwide.
