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 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, develop an environment that is truly supportive of change and fosters good working relationships and create an achievable pathway to advancement within the firm.
Create an Engaged and Active Workforce – Develop and implement a plan for utilizing the firm's "assets" – its members, to create a culture of inclusion through innovation, collaboration and risk taking for change
FordHarrison has the ability to meet these objectives and recognizes the beneficial impact a successful diversity and inclusion program will have on firm morale, productivity, strategies and success.
