The Alliance’s Flex Success® Award recognizes partners at Alliance member organizations who are successfully working reduced hours schedules, the most stigmatized form of flex. The Award acknowledges the crucial role clients play in making workplace flexibility a reality and honors attorney/client relationships that best exemplify how, with client support, attorneys can achieve greater work-life control and still have extraordinarily successful careers.
The Flex Success® Award is more than individual recognition of flex success, it’s also the acknowledgement of the successful relationship between a partner and a client supporting flexibility and advancing inclusive cultures.
THE ATTORNEY NOMINEE SHOULD MEET THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:
1. Be a partner from an Alliance member organization at the time of nomination and award acceptance;
2. Is currently working a reduced hours schedule, and has worked a reduced hours schedule for at least a year;
3. Can identify a client who knows the attorney is working a reduced hours schedule and is crucial to the attorney’s success.
If selected, both the attorney and the client must be available to attend the Alliance’s Annual Conference on March 21, 2018 in Washington, DC to receive their awards.
