We are committed to the goal of strengthening our diversity through recruiting, retaining and advancing lawyers and staff, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or age.
Our commitment is consistent with our recognition that it is the outstanding people within our business who are the source of our strength. Our colleagues—lawyers and staff—are our greatest assets. We have long embraced the principles of equal employment opportunity. We further recognize that promoting diversity is an integral component of our continuing quest for excellence as individual lawyers and as a legal practice.
Our diversity efforts are led by our US Chair, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee Katherine Tapley and our Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Nina Godiwalla. Our focus areas include:
- Racial Equity Council: Co-chairs, Ryan Manns and Jamila Mensah
- Minority Lawyers Network (MLN): Co-chairs, Sumi Sedor and Daniel Prati
- Pride Network: Chair, Mark A. Robertson
- Women in Norton Rose Fulbright (WiN) Network: Co-chairs, Purvi Maniar and Marissa Alcala
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion committee works closely with our leadership to strengthen diversity. Of course, each and every one of us must accept responsibility for and do our part to fulfill our commitment to diversity.
