Diversity

As USLAW continues to grow and look to the future, it is important to remember the principles upon which the NETWORK was founded. The commitment of member firms is to provide high quality legal representation to major corporations and to both large and small businesses across the United States and around the world. Thus, as a national and global network, it is imperative that our organization is comprised of individuals that mirror the diversity of the communities in which we serve in keeping with our organization’s commitments to client services. As members of a diverse culture, organizations such as USLAW, its members and its clients, must take the lead and have an obligation to society to be more inclusive of differences. While much has been made of the business case for diversity, USLAW however embraces diversity for more than economical expediency. USLAW is on the forefront of legal organizations that not only talk about diversity but also live it. USLAW NETWORK has a comprehensive Diversity initiative that addresses diversity issues as they relate to the individual firms, our practice groups, our membership, and our clients. As part of this initiative, USLAW has established a definition of diversity that is inclusive of all historically underrepresented categories of lawyers including women, people of color, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBT community as well as others. USLAW’s ultimate goal for achieving diversity primarily revolves around the simple, but humanistic aspect that inclusion is right … and exclusion is wrong. Right vs. Wrong…that’s what we do.
