DuPont Legal Honored for Diversity Initiatives
The National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL) has honored DuPont Legal with the organization’s 2008 NAWL President’s Award.
NAWL gives this award to a company’s legal department that has demonstrated a major commitment, through policies and practices, to advance women and minorities within the department and by aligning its outside law firms with value for diversity. DuPont Legal was chosen to receive this year’s award because it is a trailblazer, evidenced by a myriad of programs, benchmarking, enforced standards and metrics that the department conducts.
“The Board at NAWL is extremely impressed with DuPont Legal’s advances in its initiatives for women and minorities,” said Holly English, outgoing NAWL president. “We believe that DuPont Legal represents cutting-edge best practices with respect to the advancement of women and minorities.”
“We are pleased to be recognized by NAWL,” said Tom Sager, senior vice president and general counsel, DuPont. “Our department’s diversity initiatives are guided by our core value of ’Respect for People’ and are successful because of the dedication and hard work of many people within the department and in the outside law firms and suppliers that adhere to the principles of the DuPont Legal Model.”
