In this Law.com article, it is noted that “Ellisen Turner of the law firm Kirlkand & Ellis, whose practice covers intellectual property litigation and strategy, is encouraged that a national and international conversation is springing up around systemic racism faced by African Americans. Within the legal profession, clients, firm management and associates have been reaching out to ask about ways they can help. So Turner would like to put this issue on the industry’s radar screen: the failure to recognize and reward the achievements of black patent attorneys.”

Director Eldora L. Ellison, Ph.D. is mentioned in the article among five black patent attorneys named by Turner as being "at the top of the industry."
