At Locke Lord, diversity and inclusion are integral parts of our strategic plan for success. In order to have a healthy, successful workplace and provide clients with the highest quality representation, our attorneys and staff must be free to be themselves. To that end, the environment must not only be free of all forms of discrimination, but also celebrate the broadest possible spectrum of viewpoints, perspectives and backgrounds.
We celebrate individuality and promote discussion of diversity. We support organizations that share our commitment to diversity with our time and our funds. Our diversity is broad-based and stems from varying ethnicities, races, genders, sexual orientations, languages, nationalities and religions. All of these factors aid us as we strive for a workplace where attorneys can thrive as legal practitioners and genuinely enjoy the company of their colleagues.
The Firm has looked inward at any barriers to the retention of women, people of color and gay and lesbian attorneys. In conjunction with this process, we have participated in training and engaged in honest discourse regarding these issues. The Firm continues its strong commitment to diversifying its ranks in order to operate a superior law firm.
