For some law firms diversity is just a good business practice. For McGivney, Kluger & Cook, commitment to diversity and inclusion is, without question, one of the firm’s greatest strengths. Our mission is to encourage a respectful, innovative, and wide-ranging culture that values the diversity of backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and allows creativity to thrive. Our differences are many; however, this central mission remains common to attorneys and employees of the firm. We are all talented professionals, devoted to supporting one another so that our client’s goals are successfully achieved.
MKC is a transparent, fair, inclusive and inviting workplace. We seek to cultivate at every level an organization that is as diverse as the communities in which it works, and as diverse as the clients it serves. As a firm we encourage the inclusion of all backgrounds, ideas, and beliefs that span a broad range of the human experience by embracing our commonalities and respecting the differences among us. We promote individual success by providing all persons with opportunities to achieve their full potential as organizational goals are pursued.
To further our mission, we have established an active Diversity & Inclusion Committee to oversee the development and implementation of the firm’s initiatives. The Diversity Committee directs our activities in key strategic areas, including:
Develop policies and practices to recruit, support, promote, and retain attorneys and staff with diverse experiences and attributes.
Engage all attorneys and staff in conversations and trainings about diversity and inclusion.
Promote ideas and events to further the spirit of diversity and inclusion.
