Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) June 2, 2007
The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) praises the actions of Connecticut State Treasurer Denise Nappier for her efforts in seeking minority and women-owned law firms to handle matters for the Connecticut Retirement Plans and Trust Funds (the "CRPTF"). The Office of the Treasurer stated its interest in receiving responses from a diverse group of law firms. As stated in the CRPTF Diversity Principles, CRPTF and the Office of the Treasurer recognize the benefits that diversity offers for the global business community and wish to seek increased diversity among their vendors.
"The inclusion of minority and women-owned law firms by the Connecticut State Treasurer is a great step forward for our Association," said Yolanda Coly, Associate Director of NAMWOLF. "We applaud Denise Nappier for all of her efforts in this regard; she has been a leader in providing opportunities for people of color and women in the state's business."
