In 2015, the prestigious John Lewis, Jr. Corporation of the Year Award was presented to MassMutual Financial Group. This award was bestowed upon MassMutual’s legal department because it consistently demonstrates commitment to the NBA-CLS and to diversity and inclusiveness. This year, MassMutual collaborated with the NBA-CLS for “A Peek Behind the Corporate Veil.” This outstanding event offered participants the opportunity to gain an inside view of the inner workings of a Fortune 100 company’s legal department. The NBA-CLS is honored to have the support and participation of MassMutual and looks forward to a long-term relationship.
In addition, Harold Bickham, of Barnes & Thornburg, was awarded the 2015 Cora T. Walker Legacy Award for his unwavering commitment to the power of diversity, outstanding legal career, and continued support of the NBA-CLS.
