Casual for a Cause Fridays
Atlanta, GA (Vocus) May 13, 2010
The law firm of Rutherford & Christie has been selected as one of the "Top 50 Women Owned Businesses in Georgia" by DiversityBusiness.com. This accolade comes on the heels of the law firm's ranking as one of the "Top 100 Diversity Owned Businesses in Georgia."
"We are especially honored to be the only law firm included among the businesses on both lists," said Partner Carrie L. Christie.
This is the 10th annual ranking of the top women and minority owned businesses in the state of Georgia from a range of industries including technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Both lists, compiled and published by DiversityBusiness.com, are used by Fortune 500 corporations and others intent on diversifying their supply chain. DiversityBusiness.com is the nation's leading multicultural B2B Internet portal that links large organizational buyers to multicultural product and service suppliers.
More than 50 percent of Rutherford & Christie's partners and associates are from culturally diverse backgrounds. The varied ethnicity and gender of the attorneys and staff give the firm special insight into the myriad of issues facing its diverse clientele.
"Our ability to help clients effectively operate and innovate in a multicultural world, given our own diverse composition, makes us unique," noted Ms. Christie.
The Div100 awards recipients were presented during the 10th Annual National Business Awards Ceremony and Conference, April 27-29, 2010 at the Gaylord National Resort in Washington, D.C.
