CHARLOTTE, N.C.—New firm name. The same commitment to equality.
Womble Bond Dickinson supports the Human Rights Campaign and its goal of ending discrimination against LGBTQ citizens and achieving fundamental fairness and equality for all. With that in mind, a Womble Bond Dickinson team of attorneys Jim Cooley, Kevin Hall and Jeff Jackson and Client Services Director Sylvia Stock represented the firm at the 2018 HRC North Carolina Gala. The 23rd annual event took place Feb. 17 in Charlotte, and is one of the largest HRC fundraisers in the country.
HRC National Press Secretary and author Sarah McBride was the keynote speaker for the event and Tatiana Maslany, an actress who gained prominence in “Orphan Black,” received the 2018 award and recognition as an ally for LGBTQ equality on screen.
Womble Bond Dickinson has earned a perfect score of 100 on the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index each of the past four years and is designated as a “Best Place to Work” for LGBTQ equality by the HRC.
