The Diversity and Inclusion Champion Award, created in 2006, seeks to applaud individuals whose actions and activities embody the Statement of Diversity Principles. The award recognizes the critical role individuals have played in initiating and sustaining change in their organizations and the overall New York legal community. The award recipients embody the New York City Bar’s Statement of Diversity Principles, which defines diversity as an inclusive concept, encompassing race, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, nationality, age, disability and marital and parental status.

The New York City Bar Association will present its 2016 Diversity & Inclusion Champion Awards at the Diversity and Inclusion Celebration Dinner on June 22nd.
