OUR DIVERSITY COMMITTEE
Our Diversity Committee consists of partners, counsel and associates, our Managing Partner, and the Co-Chair of the firm's Hiring Committee. The Committee meets regularly to discuss ways to continue to enhance diversity at Patterson Belknap, retain minority and women associates and increase diversity at the partner level.
Committee members attend external CLE classes and programs to help generate innovative ideas for accomplishing our goal of an increasingly diverse workplace. The Committee works hand-in-hand with the firm's Management Committee to implement diversity training for partners, associates and staff. It has also undertaken a diversity assessment as a basis for future diversity initiatives. Members also participate in the New York City Bar's Diversity Working Sessions and sit on its Committee for Improving Diversity in the Profession.
