Anthony Sharett Recognized by Ohio Women's Bar Association with Diversity & Inclusion Sponsor Award

News / May 25, 2016

Last week, Partner Anthony Sharett was presented with the inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Sponsor Award for his dedication to helping women and diverse attorneys succeed in the practice of law. Ohio Women's Bar Association President Marilyn McClure-Demers, presented the award to Sharett last week at the organization’s annual meeting.

According to OWBA, the award recognizes “the exceptional efforts of individuals and organizations promoting the full and equal participation of diverse attorneys at all levels of the legal profession, with a particular focus on women, including women of color.”

Sharett has long been a mentor for women attorneys, both inside and outside of the firm, ensuring they are client-facing and receiving substantive roles in challenging representation.

“Anthony is deserving of this recognition,” said Columbus office Managing Partner Ron Linville. “He is not only out in front doing the right thing, but he is also increasing the visibility in the local, state and national legal communities of our firm's commitment to stepping up the number of diverse and women attorneys among our ranks.”
