The Florida Diversity Council honored Nancy Faggianelli, our Chief Diversity Officer, with its LGBT-Allies Leader Award. This award honors highly visible supporters of the LGBT community who contribute toward increased acceptance and understanding of that community, and the adoption of laws that foster LGBT equality in the workplace and beyond. Nancy’s efforts in this area have included working with other firm lawyers, Equality Florida, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights on a recently filed lawsuit that seeks to bring marriage equality to Florida. Congratulations! http://bit.ly/1lPoEiR
