Strength through Diversity
Wiggin and Dana lawyers share a commitment to our profession and our clients and come from varied backgrounds, bringing unique and valued perspectives that make us stronger. We've found that our diversity enhances our ability to develop creative and exceptional approaches to serving our clients' needs, our communities and our profession.
To build on that strength, we actively seek to attract, retain and promote lawyers with diverse backgrounds, and to provide all of our attorneys with meaningful opportunities to thrive at each stage of their careers. For us, diversity and inclusion mean developing and maintaining a collegial work environment that values excellence, encourages innovation, and embraces everyone regardless of race, color, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or sexual orientation. The result, we believe, creates the strongest firm possible.
Our Diversity Committee continually works to
- increase awareness at the firm of the importance of diversity and inclusion in recruiting, retention and professional development,
- articulate our clients' business needs for diverse legal support, and
- ensure that Wiggin and Dana staffs client matters with well-trained attorneys of all backgrounds.
Working with the firm's Executive Committee and department chairs, the Diversity Committee strives to ensure that everyone at every level supports the firm's diversity and inclusion efforts and shares its goals. Further, the Diversity Committee and the firm as a whole support minority bar associations and other organizations that foster diversity.
