Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Raghav Bajaj has been selected to serve on the Steering Committee for the Texas Minority Counsel Program (TMCP), a diversity initiative of the State Bar of Texas.
For three decades, the TMCP has worked to increase opportunities for minority, women, and LGBTQ+ attorneys who provide legal services to corporate and government clients and to expose organizations to the legal talent of diverse attorneys in Texas. The TMCP aims to bolster the amount and significance of legal work obtained by diverse attorneys.
Members of the TMCP Steering Committee work together to plan all aspects of an annual conference, including choosing CLE topics and speakers, recruiting corporate and law firm participants, and organizing various networking activities. The 30th-Annual TMCP is set for Nov. 2-4 in Irving, Texas.
“We commend Raghav for his participation on this important committee,” said Haynes Boone Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Officer Sharon Jones. “He is helping to carry forward Haynes Boone’s firmwide efforts to be a leader in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal provision.”
Raghav received the 2020 “Rising Star Award” from the South Asian Bar Association of North America (SABA) and serves as the chair of the South Asian Bar Association of Austin.
