At the first annual conference on Women and the Practice of Law by DuPont in 1998, participants asked for a network that would help women advance their careers within the DuPont Legal Model. Thus, the DuPont Women Lawyers Network was born.
Today, the network has myriad objectives, such as creating growth and leadership opportunities for women lawyers, assisting women working for PLFs in business development, and increasing the visibility of the women in the network. The group is also committed to eliminating bias by creating equal opportunities for leadership positions, access to clients, assignments, and training. Since women attorneys often have unique issues, the network seeks to educate lawyers about communication differences, ensure credit for ideas and objective criteria for evaluation, and inspire women to challenge the status quo.

Founded in 1997, the DuPont Legal Minority Counsel Network is a collaborative, cohesive body of attorneys of color. These members share the mission of advancing DuPont, the DuPont Legal Model, the members of the network, and the profession.
The network works to build relationships between attorneys of color, to promote each other as professional resources, enhance each other’s experience, support promotions, and generally empower network members. By working together, the network proves the value of a diverse legal team, increases profitability, fosters positive workplace environments, supports minority recruitment and mentoring, and ensures a critical mass of attorneys of color.
Over the past four years, network members have convened for the DuPont Primary Law Firm Minority Counsel Conference in Wilmington, Delaware, headquarters of DuPont Company, or in a home city of one of its primary law firms. In late June 2002, the network met at the Hotel duPont in Wilmington, Del., to commemorate its fifth anniversary.
For additional information on the DuPont Minority Counsel Network, contact: Chyrrea Sebree, senior counsel, at 302.992.3407 or email@example.com.
