Presented by the Intellectual Property Section of the National Bar Association
COVID-19 and nationwide protests have pressured companies to adapt in unimaginable ways. Now more than ever diverse professionals are needed as companies and their legal departments quickly adapt to best serve their customers in the midst of a global pandemic, and social unrest. It is in this daunting context that the Intellectual Property Section of the National Bar Association is hosting its Sixth Annual Diversity in Tech Awards (DITA). The nomination process will open on March 15, 2021.
The sixth annual — and second virtual — DITA ceremony will highlight and celebrate diverse attorneys, in-house legal departments, and companies in tech and related fields that have adopted initiatives and advanced diversity in the legal profession. The IP Section created these awards to recognize those who have demonstrated a commitment to the hiring, retention, and promotion of diverse attorneys.
This year’s award recipients will be honored at the IP Section’s virtual reception during the National Bar Association Annual Convention on Thursday, July 22, 2021. Additional details to follow this summer.
