Harris, Firm Honored for Commitment to Diversity

Tina Harris, SHB's Director of Strategic Diversity Initiatives, has been selected as a 2007 Black Achiever in Business and Industry by the Kansas City chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.  The SCLC and local businesses collaborate annually to recognize those individuals dedicated to leading their community and organization as advocates for equality and diversity.  

The organization cited Tina's leadership role in local and national bar associations in honoring her with the award.  Having spoken at various national and regional diversity conferences in 2006, Tina has once again been recognized for her originality and creativity in how to lead a diversity program within a large law firm.

This year's recipients and their organizations will be celebrated at an awards ceremony January 11 at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Kansas City.
