Wendel Rosen represents a diverse range of individuals, businesses and public entities, and we believe that our attorneys and staff should reflect the diversity of our clients. The unique strengths, experiences and perspectives of our attorneys and staff allow us to better understand our clients’ needs, analyze legal issues from a variety of perspectives, and reach legal solutions that fully address our clients’ needs. Beyond improving our client service, our diversity enriches our firm’s culture and the communities in which we serve.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee
The firm’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee is dedicated to improving internal practices, creating an inclusive environment for our employees, and coordinating external activities.
Creating an Inclusive Workplace
At Wendel Rosen, we believe that talent is uniquely enriched by a mix of age, sex, race, disability, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, and national origin. Our diversity ratios are higher than the averages for firms nationwide of our size, and we continue to prioritize continued improvement. The DE&I committee brings educational programs to firm staff and attorneys to increase awareness to issues of inclusion.
Commitment to DE&I in Hiring, Retention and Promotion
We’re keenly aware that diversity is a strength and this is reflected in our efforts to hire the best and brightest, regardless of background, for the simple reason that an inclusive workplace is a happy workplace, and a happy workplace is a more productive workplace. The DE&I Committee coordinates closely with the firm’s Recruiting Committee to encourage the development of a diverse team. Developing a diverse team doesn’t end with hiring. Attorneys are partnered with mentors to help them navigate their careers and to develop their subject matter expertise.
Supporting a DE&I Community
At Wendel Rosen, we take pride in being good at what we do, but also in doing good in our community. We have a long history of commitment to good corporate citizenry. We are actively involved in numerous community and business organizations focusing on diversity and inclusion, including a number focused specifically on supporting diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal profession.
