Norton Rose presents Mandela Day prize

Norton Rose presents Mandela Day prize

South African high commissioner Koleka Mqulwana was among guests in Sydney for the presentation of Norton Rose’s 2012 Mandela Day prize.

Mqulwana and Norton Rose Australia managing partner Wayne Spanner presented the prize to Karina Jones (pictured right with Mqulwana), a legal assistant in employment law, at the firm’s Sydney office on 29 June.

Jones correctly answered five questions about Nelson Mandela and the firm’s South African practice to win a trip to South Africa where she will celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day on 18 July.

The prize also includes $600 spending money and an opportunity to join Norton Rose colleagues to build a house in an impoverished area of Johannesburg. Norton Rose is supporting the Niall Mellon Township Trust, a house-building charity in South Africa.

Two other winners of the prize work for Norton Rose’s member firms in Montreal and Bangkok.

Mandela Day recognises the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s contribution to resolving conflicts and promoting race relations, human rights and reconciliation. The campaign encourages individuals and organisations to donate 67 minutes to the betterment of society, reflecting the former South African president’s 67 years of public service.

This July marks the third annual Nelson Mandela International Day. It was declared a day of commemoration by a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly in 2009.
