)-- The National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) is pleased to announce that sponsorship of the association has increased in its 10th Anniversary Year with commitments from FDIC, DuPont, Northwestern Mutual, and Lincoln Financial.
Corporations and public entities who support NAMWOLF share a strong affiliation with the principles of inclusion and diversity. “Beyond financial support, contributors to NAMWOLF serve to raise national consciousness on the subject of opportunities for women and minorities to compete for legal work with America’s largest corporations and government entities,” stated Yolanda Coly, Sr. Director of Advocacy & Development. “These four companies have proven to be strong advocates of diversity and we are grateful for their support.”
Each year, NAMWOLF brings together corporate counsel and M/WBE law firms at its Annual Meeting & Law Firm Expo. This year’s meeting, to be held at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, September 18-21, will feature motivational speaker Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour, six continuing legal education courses, professional networking events and an opportunity to meet some of the nation’s top-rated M/WBE law firms at the Law Firm Expo.
The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (www.namwolf.org) is a nonprofit trade association comprised of minority and women-owned law firms. Since 2001, NAMWOLF has been a bridge between corporate legal departments and M/WBE law firms. NAMWOLF is highly regarded in the profession for its vetting process of outside firms who undergo an extensive application and screening process to ensure they are of the highest quality.
