Five Reasons to Attend the 4th Annual Beacon Award

On November 14th, 2013 at 6:00pm join the Boston Bar Association as we present the 4th Annual Beacon Award to Paul Lee, partner at Goodwin Procter LLP and founding President of the Asian-American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts. Here are five more reasons to attend this year's event:

1. Your attendance displays a commitment to Diversity & Inclusion. Help us make a statement about the importance of Diversity & Inclusion in the legal profession by making this the largest Beacon Awards yet.

2. Meet the man who shaped Chinatown.  Paul Lee was one of the founders of the Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC), which led the way in developing affordable and mixed income/mixed use housing in Chinatown.  Paul was also the founding President of the Asian American Lawyers Association, and has worked hard to make Boston a city in which Asian American Lawyers and all lawyers of color feel welcome.  Join us as we honor Paul and celebrate these accomplishments.

3. Join the trailblazers of the Boston legal community.  Leaders of the BBA and Affinity Bar Associations, General Counsel, Law Firm Managing Partners, Government Lawyers and others will all come together to support this event and the cause it highlights.   

4. There is nothing else like it.  The BBA Beacon Award for Diversity & Inclusion, now in its 4th year, is one of the only events dedicated to recognizing exceptional leadership on diversity strategies that will have a lasting impact on the Greater Boston legal profession.

5. It is free to attend.  The BBA is committed to ensuring that everyone can come together for this celebration.  Because of the generosity of our sponsors, this event is free to all BBA Members and Affinity Bar Members.
