When you think about diversity, equity, and inclusion, you may think about racial disparities in policing, criminal justice reform, gender wage gaps, or even statements by major corporations, politicians, or celebrities.

Another diversity battleground is emerging in our schools and institutions of higher learning, however, and not just related to affirmative action, but with curricula and diversity training. These developments are shining yet another light on our need to transform.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion has been the bedrock of our firm since we opened over 75 years ago. As we like to say, it is in our DNA. We believe that to foster diverse leadership and urge diversity of thought, we must do what we can to advance the conversation about diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging in the workplace and the communities in which our workplaces thrive. Through our blog, we share our insights from the perspective of both an employer and employee, regarding emerging issues that affect diverse leaders and workforces. We hope you enjoy our tidbits of legal and practical information, wisdom, and humor. Thanks for joining the conversation!
