Diversity & Inclusion Newsletter
We recognized a lack of frequent, consistent, diversity-focused communications from firm leadership on the importance of diversity and inclusion at Jackson Lewis.
The firm publishes a quarterly Diversity & Inclusion Committee Newsletter that is distributed to the entire firm and is published on our website. It includes personal, diversity-focused messages from our Chairman, Board of Directors Liaison, Diversity & Inclusion Committee Chair, and Diversity Committee Advisors, and highlights diverse attorney promotions, diversity-related activities, sponsorships and events the firm has hosted, as well as awards and honors bestowed upon the firm and its diverse attorneys.
The Newsletter is widely read and very well received. It serves to communicate the firm’s diversity goals and successes, the accomplishments of our diverse attorneys, and reinforces the commitment to diversity of the firm’s top management.
We share our clients’ goals of emphasizing integrity and respect for the contribution of every employee and helping them understand the importance of having a workforce that reflects the various communities in which we work. We are committed to make progress towards our goal of empowering every attorney and staff member to realize his or her professional potential within the firm. Our unique Corporate Diversity Counseling Group, which successfully assists our major corporate clients to enhance their diversity and inclusion practices, also helps drive our internal diversity efforts.
