We pledge to advance a sustained commitment to diversity and inclusion, because we believe diversity creates greater trust and confidence in the administration of justice and in the rule of law, and enables us to better serve our clients.
Diversity makes us more effective and creative advocates for our clients by bringing different perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, talents, and interests to the practice of law. Diversity encompasses race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, nationality, language, age, disability, marital status, geographic origin and socioeconomic background.
We believe we should all work together to achieve diversity and and inclusion, and that actions and strategies designed to achieve and support diversity and inclusion will make us a better organization, better lawyers and better citizens.
Therefore, we promise to continue working with others to achieve diversity and inclusion in the education, hiring, retention, and promotion of our professional and support staff, as well as to ensure the promotion of the Firm’s attorneys to leadership positions within our organization, the judiciary, and the legal profession.
