“As diversity, equity, and inclusion are finally being seen and acknowledged as serious, pressing matters of discussion, we are delighted to honor and recognize those who have been tirelessly championing belonging and allyship - even before the topic was on the forefront of Americans’ minds. We thank you, our top 50 General Counsel, for your work and commitment, and we look forward to witnessing all that you’ll accomplish, all the leaders that you’ll develop, and the impact you’ll leave behind in the DEI sphere.” says National Diversity & Leadership Conference founder Dennis Kennedy.

The General Counsel Award is bestowed by the National Diversity Council on legal professionals who have distinguished themselves through their determination, resolve, and achievements. Their commitment to excellence within their profession, organization, and community has been instrumental to the success of their company. These are the most prominent leaders that have reached the top of their profession by being effective front-runners in their organization. They drive change, innovate, and inspire others to succeed while contributing to business growth.
