OCT. 13, 2022 – The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) has named Davis Wright Tremaine LLP a finalist for the Sager Award, recognizing the firm's sustained commitment to improving the hiring, retention, and promotion of diverse attorneys.
MCCA determines the finalists and winners for the award based on an extensive review of the 2022 MCCA Law Firm Diversity Survey, which provides detailed data on performance and impact. Davis Wright was identified as one of the country's top ten performers among large firms (those with more than 500 attorneys). The winner will be announced at a gala fundraising event next week.
"We're grateful for this recognition," said Yusuf Zakir, chief diversity, equity, & inclusion officer at Davis Wright. "The MCCA has been a longtime collaborator and partner of ours, and we look forward to continuing to work with them to build a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization and industry."
First presented in 1999, the Sager Award is named for Thomas L. Sager, the former general counsel at DuPont and a widely respected leader in diversity.
