Attorneys & Professionals

Janay Stevens, an associate in the Vorys Columbus office, was recently profiled in the Columbus Dispatch. The Q&A formatted story, titled “Columbus Attorney Helps Launch Legal Program for Minority Businesses,” focused on the Vorys Initiative for Business Empowerment, which Stevens helped launch.  

The story states:

“Question: So why do this? Tell me about the commitment that your firm made earlier this year.

Stevens: This year, we’ve all seen a heightened, or an energized, attention to issues facing historically disadvantaged groups, both in this community and from coast to coast. I watched a lot of the reactions to that. The first thing is everyone makes their statements, and that’s great. It's good to know, when you're engaged with a business, how they stand and whether you align with their mission, values, morals.

But to make true systemic change, we've got to get our hands dirty. We've got to do the work. And we've got to put in the time, put in the effort. At the end of the day, this has got to be bigger than 2020.”
