What is D&I? Why PD&I?

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 where different perspectives come together and result in the highest quality of service and outstanding business results.

Ogletree Deakins fosters inclusion as an integral part of the firm's overall professional development efforts so that this essential leadership and business skill can be honed by our attorneys and, in the future, the entire Ogletree Deakins' workforce.

The goal is to continue to have an ongoing, top-notch program that continues to drive superior performance for our clients and that removes any obstacles to achieving professional success for all Ogletree Deakins' attorneys.
