Hangley Aronchick is committed to promoting a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the firm, our practices, the legal profession, and our community. We believe that attracting and retaining diverse attorneys and staff members is not only the right thing to do, it is also the smart thing to do: diversity improves our ability to understand and meet client needs, and collaboration among diverse perspectives leads to more creative, informed, and holistic thinking. In short, a more diverse firm is a stronger firm.
Our Diversity Equity & Inclusion Committee (the “DEI Committee”) is comprised of attorneys and staff members who are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the firm and the legal profession more broadly. The DEI Committee strives to:
- Identify ways to collaborate with clients, bar associations, and other non-profit organizations that aim to promote diversity in the legal profession.
- Educate our attorneys and staff members about topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Host and sponsor events to promote and celebrate diversity and increase awareness of DEI issues.
- Create equal and fair access to all aspects of firm life.
With these goals in mind, we aim to create an inclusive workplace that helps address underrepresentation in the legal profession and fosters an environment of creativity, innovation, and mutual respect.
Our firm’s commitment to promoting equity and inclusion is reflected in the work that we do. From prevailing in the case that established the right to same-sex marriage in Pennsylvania, to successfully defending laws that safeguard fair elections and equal access to the vote, we take great pride in our work in the courtroom to defend and expand the principles of equality and inclusion.
