A Celebration of the Work to Advance Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Beacon Awards recognizes individuals, organizations and corporations who are forging innovative paths toward a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive profession and greater community.
Last year, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the event was able to raise $80,000 which will allow the Boston Bar Association to continue our vital work in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion within our profession, providing innovative educational programming, advancing the rule of law and access to justice initiatives in the community, and supporting our City through crucial public service initiatives.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details about this year’s Beacon Awards!
