Our Commitment To Diversity
At McCarter & English, LLP, we believe that a strong profession must offer equal opportunity and reflect the diversity of our communities, our clients, and our nation. The diversity of our attorneys, administrators, and staff enables us to better understand, value, and respect the multicultural differences that comprise today's business environment. Recruiting, retaining, mentoring, and promoting diverse attorneys is not only the right course of action, it serves to strengthen and enrich the firm as well as the services that we provide to our clients.
The firm has a proactive Diversity Committee consisting of partners and administrative staff from the various regional offices. The Diversity Committee is charged with educating members of the firm on diversity issues, supporting and promoting diverse candidates, and sponsoring/representing the firm at various diversity-related events. The Diversity Committee holds regular meetings to address relevant topics, including ways for the firm and its various practice groups to enhance and improve the retention, promotion, and professional growth of diverse attorneys.
