Our policy is simple: Eckert Seamans values the breadth of perspective and experience that comes with a diverse complement of lawyers and staff. We are a firm with national and international clients and a practice which takes our lawyers into cities and courts across this country and abroad. A diverse workforce not only provides a better understanding of the communities and business environments in which we and our clients operate, but also makes our firm a better place to work. Diversity is, and will continue to be, important to our success.
We actively and continuously examine our policies and practices in order to strengthen those that promote inclusiveness. We work to establish “best practices” in the area of diversity just as we do in all areas of our business. As part of our efforts we also look to best practices developed at other businesses that we can apply at Eckert Seamans.
Eckert Seamans is committed to developing and maintaining a diverse workforce of lawyers and staff. We will continue to work hard to make our workforce reflective of the communities which we serve.
In order to meet our goals, our firm has established a Diversity Committee, which includes lawyers (both members and associates) from a variety of offices and practice groups. The Diversity Committee also includes a member of the firm’s Executive Committee, leading members of our practice groups and managing partners at our offices. The Diversity Committee is charged with coordinating recruitment and retention of female and minority attorneys as well as the development and implementation of policies which foster diversity at all levels of the firm. It works closely with the firm’s Hiring, Associate and Executive Committees.
