“The bursaries were awarded to twelve deserving candidates as part of the Phatshoane Henney Group support initiatives to grow the number of Black professionals in the group. Member firms have set themselves specific targets for the appointment and development of Black professionals at their firms, and the bursary programme is an important group initiative to contribute to the achievement of the targets we have set ourselves,” remarks Group Chair, Douglas Henney.
The bursaries were paid to candidate attorneys via the Phatshoane Henney Foundation, the Group’s registered non-profit organisation which receives its funds from socio-economic contributions made by member firms and their clients and uses donations received to support socio-economic initiatives such the awarding of bursaries and other deserving projects.
The following candidates received bursaries from the Phatshoane Henney Foundation at the beginning of 2015.
