Chair's Message to Leadership

ABA Spirit of Excellence Award

ABA Spirit of Excellence Award

Congratulations to our colleague Pamela Jones Harbour for receiving the ABA Spirit of Excellence Award on January 25, recognizing her career-long commitment to encouraging racial and ethnic diversity in the legal profession.   We were very proud to nominate Pamela for this well-deserved award and thrilled to see her efforts recognized. 

Pamela, who is recognized internationally for her leadership in the field of data privacy, has been a personal inspiration to many both inside and outside the Section of Antitrust Law.  Within the Section, Pamela has served as a committee chair, Council member, Officer, and Reserves Board member.  Currently, she is Senior Vice President and Legal Officer at Herbalife Nutrition.  Previously, in addition to being a highly successful private practitioner, Pamela served a Commissioner on the U.S. FTC from 2003 until April 2010 and as a Deputy Attorney General in the New York State Attorney General’s Office during the 1990s.   Please join me in congratulating Pamela on her award and applauding her efforts for the Section and for diversity in the legal profession.

The Section of Antitrust is committed to promoting diversity within the bar and in the Section’s leadership.  Please visit the webpage for our Membership and Diversity Committee to see what we are doing and join the Committee.  Reach out to Committee leadership to learn more.
