Stokes Lawrence’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Stokes Lawrence is committed to developing, retaining, and promoting lawyers, leaders and staff with diverse backgrounds and experiences and to creating an equitable and inclusive culture. To us, diversity encompasses characteristics including race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, veteran status, socio-economic status, and family and marital status. We promote and embrace such diversity because it is our responsibility to do so, and because it is vital to the success of our clients, our organization and our broader community. We will work toward these goals by:

  • educating ourselves on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • recruiting, retaining and advancing diverse attorneys and staff and investing in the pipeline to diversify the legal profession
  • mentoring our attorneys
  • creating and maintaining a climate of respect and collaboration
  • contributing to these efforts financially and through pro bono work and community service
  • continuing transparency about firm financials and about policies related to pay and promotion
  • acknowledging that we can always do more and better
