We will be accepting nominations for the 2020 Flex Success Award from June 15 through July 15, 2020.
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:
- Be a partner from an Alliance member organization at the time of nomination and award acceptance;
- Is currently working a reduced hours schedule, and has worked a reduced hours schedule for at least a year;
- 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 virtually accept their awards at our annual conference (also going forward virtually) on November 5, 2020, Moments of Impact: Transforming Organizational Culture.
AWARD TIMELINE AND SELECTION PROCESS:
2020 Nominations Open: Monday, June 15, 2020
2020 Nominations Due: Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
Winners will be notified and publicly announced in August 2020.
Winners will be presented with the Flex Success® Award at the Alliance’s Annual Conference on Thursday, November 5, 2020. Winners must be available to virtually accept their award and their profiles will appear in the conference program and on the Alliance website.
Identifying information will be removed from all nomination submissions. The Alliance team will review redacted versions of the nominations and evaluate the nominee’s exceptional service to the client while working reduced hours and the client’s pivotal support of the nominee’s reduced hours schedule.
The attorney nominee may be nominated by a colleague from an Alliance member organization or may self-nominate. NOTE: The award goes to an individual attorney and a representative of the client — NOT to the firm.
