FordHarrison LLP, one of the country's largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce that the firm is the 2016 recipient of AT&T's Legal Department Diversity and Inclusion award for medium law firms. AT&T annually selects one firm from the small, medium and large-size categories to receive this honor. This award highlights firms making the greatest strides and progress toward the goal of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

Jennifer Jones, senior associate in FordHarrison's Dallas office, accepted the award on behalf of the firm at the AT&T Legal Conference in Dallas, TX on February 3, 2016. AT&T noted that FordHarrison's Lateral Attorney Recruitment Incentive Program is unique among law firms and was one of the reasons for the firm's selection.

Dawn Siler-Nixon, the firm's Diversity and Inclusion Partner said, "We are proud to be one of AT&T's partners and to share the company's deep commitment to diversity and inclusion. Receiving this recognition is truly an honor."

Diversity touches every aspect of our law firm, our practice and our modern world. FordHarrison believes that including the diverse perspectives of attorneys from various backgrounds is integral to delivering the best possible service to our clients. FordHarrison has implemented and built on its diversity strategic plan since 2006.
