An excerpt from NCLW's report.

Attorney diversity is another ongoing challenge for law firms....Nexsen Pruet board chairman John Sowards said the firm recently appointed Raleigh partner Ken Lewis to head the firm’s diversity initiative.

“Through that we fund annual scholarships and in September we hosted American Bar Association President Paulette Brown for a Diversity CLE and a round table about the ‘School to Prison Pipeline,’” Sowards said. “We are actively working to increase diversity.”
