Presented by the Intellectual Property Section of the National Bar Association
COVID-19 has 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. It is in this daunting context that the Intellectual Property Section of the National Bar Association is calling for nominations for its Fifth Annual Diversity in Tech Awards (DITA).
The fifth annual — and first 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.
Several award recipients will be selected and honored at the IP Section’s virtual reception during the National Bar Association Annual Convention this summer.

Deadline Extended: All submissions must be submitted electronically by Wednesday, June 10.
