Erica Brown, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at Dawn Foods, has been named as a Midwest Region Honoree on the Lawyers of Color’s Nation’s Best List.  

The honorees on the inaugural list were selected for their noteworthy accomplishments and commitment to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. Recipients were chosen by fellows, advisers and editorial staff members of the Lawyers of Color, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting diversity and advancing democracy and equality.  

According to the organization, Brown was selected due to her significant accomplishments in the field and ongoing positive impact. Brown is known for increasing access and opportunities for diverse individuals both inside and outside the legal profession. Throughout her career, she has partnered with individuals from across backgrounds to help them demonstrate their skills and expertise, understanding of their business and the overall value they provide their organization.

Brown has been with Dawn for two years, joining the company as senior counsel before being promoted to her current role in December. Prior to joining the Dawn family, she worked in the legal and compliance departments of some of the country’s most recognized brands including Walmart, McDonald’s and Kellogg’s. 

The Nation’s Best list will be published in a special issue of the magazine later this year. For more information on Lawyers of Color, visit https://lawyersofcolor.org/
