Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity embraces each person's uniqueness and encompasses all the ways in which we differ.

This includes differences in age, ethnicity, gender, physical ability, race, sexual orientation, educational background, geographic location, income, marital status, personality, military experience, parental status, religious belief, work experience, and job classification among others.

Inclusion refers to harnessing this uniqueness towards a common goal.

Inclusion fosters a work environment of respect and engagement, and brings a variety of different perspectives together in a meaningful way in order to get the full, more accurate picture. This results in the highest quality of service to our clients and in excellent and sustainable business outcomes.

Ogletree Deakins fosters diversity and inclusion as an integral part of the firm's overall professional development efforts so that all our attorneys can hone this essential leadership and business skill.
