2021 Diversity in Tech & IP (Virtual) Awards

Presented by the Intellectual Property Section of the National Bar Association

Over the last year, companies have been forced to adapt in unimaginable ways in view of the global pandemic and social unrest.  These events have highlighted the importance of diversity, and why it is important now more than ever.  It is in this context that the Intellectual Property Section of the National Bar Association is now accepting nominations for its Sixth Annual, Diversity in Tech Awards (DITA). 

The DITA submissions present an opportunity to nominate an in-house legal department or individual lawyer for recognition.  Ideally, these companies or individuals have demonstrated and sustained a commitment to advancing the hiring, retention, and promotion of diverse attorneys in the technology industry.

Several award recipients will be selected and honored at the IP Section’s reception during the National Bar Association Annual Convention this summer.  Additional details concerning the awards ceremony will follow in the coming months.

DEADLINE: May 24, 2021
