Washington, DC – Wiley Rein LLP is pleased to announce that it has been named the 2022 winner of Dell Technologies’ “Law Firm Diversity Award,” in recognition of the firm’s dedication to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the legal profession.
Wiley Chief Diversity Officer Rashida MacMurray-Abdullah accepted the award on the firm’s behalf during a December 14 ceremony. She was joined at the event by Wiley partners Scott D. Delacourt and Sara M. Baxenberg, who are members of Wiley’s acclaimed Telecom, Media & Technology Practice.
“Wiley is honored to be recognized by Dell for our efforts and grateful for the opportunity to work with Dell on shared priorities for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in each of our organizations as well as the broader legal community,” MacMurray-Abdullah said. “Receiving this award from Dell Technologies is of particular significance to us; our work on behalf of Dell reflects our firm’s core DEI values, as we have helped ensure that Dell’s products remain equally accessible to users across varying ability levels.”
The recognition from Dell reflects numerous Wiley diversity initiatives, including:
- Relaunching and expanding recruiting and retention strategies through the firm’s pipeline programs and affinity groups;
- Creating a firm-wide DEI training series for all Wiley attorneys and business professionals; and
- Being intentional in providing leadership opportunities for diverse attorneys and suppliers through Wiley’s workload oversight process and the launch of a supplier diversity program.
