Diversity Committee

Committee Perspective

The Workplace Diversity Committee’s mission statement and initiatives are approved and embraced by members of the firm. The Managing Principal chairs the Committee, further demonstrating the firm’s commitment to honoring and respecting the unique views of each employee. The committee is composed of senior level principals, of counsel and managers, and meets frequently to evaluate its efforts and progress. Many initiatives radiate from the Committee’s aggressive Twelve Month Action Plan, which details a number of proactive efforts to recruit and retain personnel of different backgrounds. Firm wide, the Committee seeks to educate and train our people on diversity awareness through outside speakers. Personnel are kept abreast of new developments through annual meetings and periodic lunches.
