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, through their unique strengths, experiences, and perspectives, and enrich not only our culture but also the communities we serve. Not only is it the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do. Our diversity allows us to better understand our clients’ needs, to approach legal issues from a variety of perspectives, and to come up with better legal solutions that, ultimately, allow us to better serve you.

Diversity and Inclusion Committee

The firm’s Diversity 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 and of our size, and we continue to prioritize continued improvement. The D&I committee brings educational programs to firm staff and attorneys to increase awareness to issues of inclusion.

Commitment to Diversity 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 Diversity and Inclusion Committee coordinates closely with the firm’s recruiting committee to encourage the development of a diverse team. Attorneys are given mentors to help them navigate their careers and to develop their subject matter expertise.

Supporting a Diverse 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 (check out our pages dedicated to community, environmental stewardship and B Corp certification, for more information on these areas). We are actively involved in numerous community and business organizations focusing on diversity and inclusion, including a number focused specifically on supporting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
