Law firm wins award for diversity annual report
A law firm has received recognition for its Diversity and Inclusion Annual Report from a Midwest professional organization.
The Midwest chapter of the Legal Marketing Association, or LMA, recognized Warner Norcross & Judd with a 2015 Your Honor Award.
The firm took first place in the annual report category for its piece on diversity and inclusion at the firm.
Warner Norcross was also recognized as a finalist in the advertising, firm brochures and newsletters categories.
The LMA Midwest Your Honor Awards recognize creativity, execution, achievement and overall excellence in legal marketing, business development and communications.
Warner Norcross’ winning report was selected from a pool of submissions from law firms, law-related organizations and service providers in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin.
This is the first time the firm has been recognized by the LMA.
Diversity and inclusion report
Now in its ninth year, the annual report was created to inform clients and the community of initiatives aimed to make the firm a more diverse and inclusive place to work.
The 2014 report features a letter from Warner Norcross' managing partner, Douglas Wagner, as well as profiles of attorneys and articles on new programs. It also includes a demographic profile of the firm.
“We’re honored to be recognized by the Legal Marketing Association,” said Rodney Martin, diversity partner, Warner Norcross & Judd. “Our Diversity and Inclusion Annual Report is an important tool for us to communicate our commitment to increasing gender and racial diversity in our firm and in the profession.”
This year's report and reports from previous years are available online.
