HOUSTON (May 7, 2007) — LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – Bracewell & Giuliani LLP associate Francis E.W. Chin has been selected as a member of the Houston Bar Association’s Minority Opportunities in the Legal Profession committee for 2007-2008.
The committee develops and sponsors educational programs and service projects aimed at promoting equal opportunities for minority lawyers.
“I think it is important to support this committee and its efforts because I believe both personally and professionally that having a diverse workplace is a priority,” said Chin. “We are at a critical time here in Houston and around the country where diversity initiatives in law firms and corporations are at the forefront. These types of initiatives hopefully will gain more support and recognition, and ultimately, become wholly accepted and appreciated at law firms and corporations to the extent that they become commonplace. I live for a day when such committees are no longer needed,” added Chin.
