  • McCarter Celebrates - International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition

    In August, we commemorate International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition (August 23). The United Nations designated August 23 as a day to remember the lives of the millions who were transported against their will from Africa to the Americas from the 16th century to the 19th century and those that died while being transported. The intention of the day is to educate and to raise awareness of the dangers of racism and prejudice. We also celebrate Women’s Equality Day (August 26) to salute the ratification of the 19th Amendment, to raise awareness of gender equality and to recognize the hard work and sacrifices made by women to attain the right to vote.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our Commitment

Our goal is to walk the walk. Like our clients, our attorneys come from a wide range of industries, geographies, and cultures. Our Executive Committee and Diversity & Inclusion Committee have partnered to advance initiatives that focus on recruitment, professional development, attorney retention and advancement, and cross-cultural awareness. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is evidenced in the quality of work that we provide to our clients, the level of commitment that we show to our communities, and the culture of inclusion that we foster in each of our offices. We are proud of our history of equality and deeply committed to continuing to build upon our successes.

Diversity & Inclusion Committee

The firm has a proactive Diversity & Inclusion Committee consisting of partners and administrative staff from the various regional offices. It 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 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.
