McGuireWoods Named an LCLD Top Performer, Wins Compass Award

November 1, 2021

On Oct. 26, the national Leadership Council on Legal Diversity announced its 2021 Top Performers and Compass Award recipients. McGuireWoods was one of 60 LCLD member organizations that earned both honors.

Top Performers are LCLD's most active member corporations and law firms, while the Compass Awards recognize members who attend LCLD's annual meetings and participate in the Fellows and Pathfinder programs, plus at least one pipeline program, such as mentoring or hosting 1L LCLD Scholars. Earning both recognitions, in LCLD's eyes, signals a firm's "commitment to building more diverse organizations and a more inclusive legal profession."

McGuireWoods partner Ava Lias-Booker, chair of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee, noted: “Our commitment to attracting and retaining talent means we ensure lawyers from diverse backgrounds are meaningfully engaged in client work and relationships, and we ensure they have the tools to ascend to leadership roles. McGuireWoods is proud to be an LCLD member and to support its mission.”

McGuireWoods has been a member and active participant in LCLD since the organization was founded in 2009.
