MAUMEE, Ohio, May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) announced today that it is supporting the American Bar Association's (ABA) Resolution 113, which urges providers of legal services to expand and create opportunities for diverse attorneys at all levels of responsibility. The resolution also urges corporations to support the advancement of diversity in the legal profession by directing a greater percentage of purchased legal services to diverse attorneys.
The company will ask its legal service providers to complete the Model Diversity Survey, which was created by the ABA to standardize information gathering and benchmarking. Dana intends to use the information as an additional factor in determining the firms the company will retain for legal services in the future.
"Dana is focused on attracting and fostering a diverse workforce whose perspectives improve our competitiveness and ensure that we design, develop and manufacture products that meet the needs of the global market," said Doug Liedberg, senior vice president, general counsel, and secretary of Dana.
