In order to provide leadership, structure and accountability to our diversity efforts, an overarching Diversity Steering Committee was formed. The Diversity Steering Committee provides direction and oversight to Regional Diversity Committees that, in turn, implement ideas and programs in each office. A Diversity Task Force works with the Diversity Steering Committee and the Regional Diversity Committees to promote diversity awareness through events, recognition and celebrations.
The initiatives proposed and encouraged by the Diversity Steering Committee strive to bring awareness and understanding of differences to our employees. The Committee ensures the firm recognizes, utilizes and celebrates differences, and cultivates the pipeline of women, minorities and members of the LGBT community interested in the legal profession while promoting the retention and advancement of all employees.
