2008 Report and Recommendations of the Patton Boggs Diversity Committee

    23 January 2009

    Squire Patton Boggs Diversity Committee’s third annual report presents our first opportunity to assess the Committee’s progress over a multiple-year period. To that end, on September 12, 2008, we held a special meeting to review our mission, the tasks that we had set for ourselves, our accomplishments and our shortfalls. This discussion produced the priorities that we have identified for 2009.

    The 2008 annual report begins with a review of our first two full years of activity, examining both our achievements and our as-yet-to-be-achieved objectives. The second portion is devoted to a discussion of the three priority areas that we have identified for 2009: (1) lateral recruitment, (2) increased business development participation for women and diverse attorneys, and (3) internal firm communications on diversity-related issues.
