In celebration of our first full year as a committee, the Lasher DE&I Committee is working on growing and engaging on a deeper level in our efforts. To that end, the DEI team is excited to announce our new initiative: “IDEA”.
IDEA = Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Access. Access is important to make opportunities available to all people regardless of their abilities or experience.
The IDEA mission remains the same:
To be an inclusive workplace that is built on respect and pride and generates opportunities for everyone and enables us to best serve our clients and community.
We will utilize the following pillars in decision making and action steps to pursue an environment that fosters diversity and inclusivity:
- Enhance Learning & Development
- Engage Future Talent
- Act in Our Communities
- Drive Accountability & Leadership
It has never been more critical for law firms to demonstrate their commitment to IDEA. The most promising clients, law firm staff and attorneys are all looking for firms that promote IDEA. We are excited for 2022, and especially the addition of our LEAD program intern later this summer! Stay tuned for a 2022 full of wonderful IDEAs.
