Diversity Committee

Emphasizing our commitment to achieving diversity among our professionals, our firm Diversity Committee identifies opportunities to expand the presence of women and minorities at and beyond the firm through community and client-focused events and activities. The committee also collaborates with the Hiring Committee, to focus on recruitment, retention and professional development. In addition, the firm and Diversity Committee work with Just the Beginning Foundation, an educational pipeline program for students that strives to inspire under-represented students and increase diversity in the legal profession.
