DEIC Initiatives


Change takes persistence, patience, and pressure. This is especially true in matters of diversity, equity and inclusion. We’re proud of our 50- year legacy of investment in progress. And we’re well-positioned to do much more in the years ahead.

Advancing DEI in our firm

We know that diverse, equitable, and inclusive teams are strong and innovative teams. They listen to the voices that have been unheard or silenced. They envision possibilities that are yet unseen. They can lead us to places we want to go.

That’s exactly what we need as we meet the challenges of the future. And it’s exactly why we’re implementing structural changes and operationalizing our values through targeted, high-impact policies and programs that will incentivize the ongoing transformation of our organization.

We’re measuring our progress

To understand where we’ve been, where we’re going, and where we are in relation to our goals, we measure our progress.

We’re Enhancing Our Culture of Inclusion

In an inclusive culture, employees are seen, understood, and valued. Through policies, programs, and the activities of our Inclusion Networks, we’re developing a culture of inclusion that enhances our other core values of commitment to client service and teamwork.

We’re Developing Our Future Leaders

In order to achieve our firm’s ambitious goals and continue to compete in a challenging and dynamic market, we need exemplary leaders. We’re cultivating leadership at all levels within our organization, from 1st year associates to partners.

Advancing DEI in our Communities

We’re not just in the communities where our 19 global offices are located. We’re a part of the 19 communities in which we live and work. And we’re in a unique position to affect positive change that makes our communities more inclusive places for us all.

We’re Supporting Diverse Images and Narratives

It is often said that “[Y]ou can’t be what you can’t see.” Seeing matters. Being seen matters. We’re committed to sharing the vision, voices, and stories of diverse artists and others who inspire us.

We’re Investing in Pro Bono Work

We’re leveraging our skills, knowledge, and status on behalf of our communities, especially populations that have experienced institutional and systemic discrimination and encountered social, economic or educational barriers.

Advancing DEI in the Legal Profession

While it’s heartening to see our progress as a firm, we can’t ignore the slow rate at which the legal profession is progressing as a whole. That’s why we’re partnering with organizations across sectors to build the legal talent pool by expanding the pipeline to grow into opportunities for all.

We’re Investing in Education

It’s never too early to begin preparing students for the journey of lifelong learning that is a career in law. From raising awareness to skill-building, from mentorship to our informative panels for college students—we invest heavily in educating and equipping the lawyers of the future.

We’re Investing in the Legal Talent Pipeline

Opportunity doesn’t start on the first day of work at a law firm. It must be cultivated long before, through access to training, extra support, and targeted outreach. That’s why we support and actively engage with a diverse and growing portfolio of pipeline initiative programs.

We’re developing a culture of inclusion that enhances our other core values of commitment to client service and teamwork.
