I am pleased to announce the finalists for the 2013 Dell Legal Diversity Award.  It has been nearly two years since Dell began this program and it has been gratifying to see our law firms embrace the effort with enthusiasm.  Applications for the 2013 award increased 20% over the initial 2012 pool.  We appreciate all of the law firms that took time to share with us their commitment to empowering a diverse work force and how they share the value Dell places in diversity.

This year our finalists for the Dell Legal Diversity Award are:

I am encouraged to see that the list includes both returning finalists and new firms as well and I look forward to announcing the winner of the 2013 award in the fall.  Please join me in congratulating these seven outstanding examples of law firms helping to grow a diverse workforce.
