We are committed to diversity in our workplace. Diversity is a strength that enables us to bring a broader perspective to the problems faced by our clients. It also promotes a higher quality of work and enriches our work environment. Accordingly, it is our goal to foster and maintain a firm-wide culture that supports diversity in order that all employees and attorneys feel welcome, included, valued, supported and able to succeed. We believe that a diverse workforce makes us a better law firm.
We recruit, retain and promote attorneys who are examples of diversity. In addition to supporting the professional careers of women and minorities, we believe that our clients benefit from the varied perspectives and life experiences that all individuals bring to our firm. Since the late 1980's, women have been elected members of the firm's management and compensation committees. Today, many of the leadership roles are filled by female attorneys who represent almost 1/3 of the equity shareholders of the firm.
For more than 12 years, MehaffyWeber has been proud to co-host with DuPont a minority job fair for hundreds of law students from Texas and neighboring states. These students are provided the opportunity to interview with law firms and service providers for summer associate positions and regular associate positions with these firms. Our attorneys regularly volunteer in our minority communities.
