We are excited for the Walmart Legal Department Strategic Partners Sponsorship Program. Our hope is to increase the impact we can have on diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, and the application focuses on the objectives you hope to achieve through the good works your organization does and will help us to ensure that our investment is being thoughtfully used to lift up our profession.
The process is similar to that used by our company’s foundation in awarding grants to charitable organizations. Your organization will simply complete the application, setting out, among other things, the purpose for which you are requesting an award and the amount requested. The application process is designed to be objective and to comply with best practices from a corporate governance perspective.
We welcome applications from any and all groups that share our view of the importance of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and are doing good works in this space.
The Fiscal Year 2016 application period has closed. We will begin accepting applications in July 2015.
