Global law firm Squire, Sanders & Dempsey L.L.P. has launched its new diversity website. The new site incorporates helpful enhancements for clients and other site visitors seeking information about the firm's diversity and women's initiatives including:
- Diversity Committee mission statement and members
- Spotlight on minority and women firm leaders
- Sampling of community outreach and firm events that highlight women and minorities
- List of Affinity Groups
- Women's Initiative committees and contacts
- News and events related to the firm's diversity efforts
- Recent awards and distinctions
“We established this website to ensure our lawyers and prospective lawyers, clients, and the general public have easy access to information about the firm’s ongoing diversity efforts,” said Carolyn J. Buller, partner and head of the firm’s Women’s Initiative. “Squire Sanders considers diversity a core strength, which is why we have a significant number of women and minorities in management and leadership positions. Our firm has a long history of valuing and cultivating a diverse workplace. We were the first major law firm in Cleveland to adopt a nondiscriminatory hiring policy, which we follow in each of our locations across the globe today.”
“We are excited to announce this launch since it again confirms our commitment to this fundamental initiative,” said Frederick R. Nance, co-chair of the Diversity Committee.
Traci H. Rollins, who also serves as co-chair of the Diversity Committee, added, “We believe that this website will be of interest and value to our firm, our clients and the legal community at large, and provides a good sampling of the diversity programming within Squire Sanders.”
Squire Sanders is also proud to provide legal counsel to many corporations that have signed the Call to Action Commitment Statement for Diversity in the Legal Profession, a pledge to work with law firms that excel in diversity issues.
