Each year, Lockheed Martin recognizes one firm for its efforts to attract, develop, and retain diverse talent. This year, Lockheed has recognized Williams & Connolly with the company's 2020 Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion award. The firm received the award based on the significant number of women and diverse attorneys who work on, and play leading roles on, Lockheed matters.
Williams & Connolly was formally recognized at Lockheed's virtual end-of-year Legal Division meeting on December 17. Partners Chris Mandernach and Malachi Jones accepted the award and had the opportunity to discuss the firm's D&I initiatives with 300+ Lockheed lawyers. “Williams & Connolly is proud to partner with innovative, collaborative leaders like Lockheed Martin, who share our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and the highest standards of professionalism,” said Executive Committee Chairman Joe Petrosinelli.
