WASHINGTON, D.C.—Womble Carlyle is now Womble Bond Dickinson, but the firm’s commitment to equality for all remains as strong as ever.

The firm once again was a Platinum Sponsor of the Human Rights Campaign Annual Dinner. Lawyers Lela Ames, Kevin Hall, Debbie Israel, Louis Rouleau, Elizabeth Lee and Kim Mann represented Womble Bond Dickinson at the event, which took place Oct. 28. 

The line-up of speakers at the HRC National Dinner always is impressive, and this year was no exception:

  • Former U.S. Presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton;
  • Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos;
  • Tennis legend Billy Jean King;
  • Sen. Kamala Harris;
  • Gold Star father Khizr Khan; and
  • Emmy Award-winning actress Uzo Aduba.

Multi-platinum recording artists DNCE closed the dinner with a performance. This year’s dinner attracted 3,600 guests, making it the largest event in HRC history.

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

Womble Bond Dickinson has earned a perfect score of 100 on the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index each of the past three years and is designated as a “Best Place to Work” for LGBT equality by the HRC.
