Nominations Sought for OWLS 2017 Workplace Leader Award
The 2017 award recipient will be honored during OWLS Fall CLE Friday, October 27, 2017. Location TBD.
- A healthy balance between work and personal life
- Acquiring and maintaining a diverse workforce with diverse leadership
- Maximizing opportunities for women, people of color, and people from other marginalized communities to succeed in the workplace and advance to positions of influence and leadership
The award will recognize a specific program, policy, or project that is successfully addressing one or more of the concerns outlined above. We are not expecting to find an employer to exemplify all of these virtues. We welcome nominations from all legal employers including in-house legal departments, government employers, and employers who are making strides in recruiting and retaining lawyers who are not part of the dominant legal culture, honoring the gifts they bring, and promoting them for leadership.
Nominations should include: information that will help the award committee evaluate the specific program, policy, or project of the employer; the markers of success for that program, policy, or project; and names of people who can be contacted for further information.
