Led by our chairperson and chief D&I officer, our strategy has four elements:
Leadership Commitment: Leadership sets the tone from the top to ensure that diversity and inclusion are core aspects of firm strategy.
Recruiting and the Diversity Pipeline: We recruit exceptional and diverse talent at all levels.
Professional Development and Inclusive Workplaces: Our extensive suite of professional development training and hands-on experiences is enhanced by access to our network of inclusion councils and firmwide resource groups. We also recognize the challenges of managing professional expectations and ambitions while prioritizing time with family. Our exceptional set of family-friendly policies enables more effective integration of career aspirations and personal priorities.
Strategic Partnerships: We partner with clients and other organizations committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession to advance mutual goals, hold ourselves accountable and create valuable relationships.
“I truly believe the firm takes diversity and inclusion seriously and tries to incorporate and support diversity in all that we do.” Katie Brossy, Senior Counsel, American Indian Law & Policy, Washington, D.C.
