Vinson & Elkins has been named a 2019 “Houston Top Law Firm for Diversity” by the National Diversity Council (NDC).
Founded in 2008, the NDC’s mission is to be both a resource

Each year, the NDC recognizes and honors prominent leaders
in the legal community that embody and champion diversity as part of its annual
Texas Legal Diversity Week.

V&E understands its responsibility to achieve equality — inclusive of
diverse interests, backgrounds, perspectives, race, ethnicity, national origin,
gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, religion and
physical ability. The firm’s structure, policies, and programs support a focus
on diversity, including its Women’s Initiative, Diversity Council, affinity
groups, diversity conferences and pipeline initiatives to identify early
opportunities to further diversify the firm and the profession.
