Katrine Aliha Beck, Fullerton Beck co-founder, has been awarded the coveted Ruth Bader Ginsberg Award by the Trial Lawyers section of the New York State Bar Association. The award, named for the late Supreme Court Justice who was a fervent advocate of equality, honors a trial attorney who has made extraordinary efforts to address and raise awareness about issues of equity, diversity and inclusion.
Katrine, a first-generation immigrant from Iran committed to diversity and inclusion, spearheads the firm’s efforts. Most notable is the firm’s equity in its partnership ranks — a rarity in the legal sector – which boasts seven women and six men. Additionally, the firm is committed to diversity and inclusion and strives to hire employees and vendors who are committed to these firm values. The firm also actively participates in organizations that reflect its principles including the National Black Law Students Association, Dominican Bar Association, Girls Inc. of Westchester, and Equal Justice Initiative, in addition to other organizations and initiatives.
Katrine will receive the award on October 6th during a NYSBA CLE at 5:15 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend this free event. More information and registration is available on the event website.
