Like our clients, we believe diversity and inclusion are the pathways to success and employee fulfillment. Diversity touches every aspect of our law firm, our practice and our modern world. We are committed to fostering diversity not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because maintaining a culture of inclusion aids our firm in attracting and retaining the best talent. Our firm also believes that including the diverse perspectives of attorneys from various backgrounds, including in leadership roles which directly impact the firm's progress in diversity and inclusion, is integral to delivering the best possible service to our clients.
Strategic Objectives. We believe in being on the cutting edge of everything that we do and to continue to guide our path towards that goal, we have focused our diversity and inclusion efforts on three distinct, yet intertwined objectives:
Recruit, Retain, Advance – Integrate recruitment, retention and advancement into our firm's overall objectives, through continuing to create partnerships within the community, developing an environment that is truly supportive of change and fosters good working relationships and creating an achievable pathway to advancement within the firm.
Aided by the advocacy and diligence of FordHarrison's Diversity Executive Council and Diversity Advisory Board, our firm strives to meet these goals and recognizes the beneficial impact a successful diversity and inclusion program will have on firm morale, productivity, strategies and success.
