The Dallas Hispanic Bar Association will celebrate diversity in the legal profession at its annual event, Noche de Luz, on October 15.
Attorneys, judges, and students will gather for the black-tie gala at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas to highlight the bar association’s efforts to support educational and diversity initiatives in law.
The DHBA raises money through the event—in its 11th year—to promote the organization’s mission and diversity pipeline programs and also presents awards to individuals who have contributed to the Hispanic legal community.
This year, Marcos G. Ronquillo, a partner in Fishman Jackson Ronquillo, will receive the La Luz Award for his contributions to the legal community, including his enduring support of the DHBA. Cynthia Sutherland, legal director of business and information solutions at PepsiCo, will receive the Corporate Counsel Award for her commitment to fostering greater diversity in the profession and her promotion of progressive programs.
