IN PRINCIPLE AND IN PRACTICE, OBERMAYER VALUES DIVERSITY
OUR PRINCIPLE—OBERMAYER DIVERSITY STATEMENT
Obermayer is committed to the principle that every person at the Firm deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. We are proud of our tradition of fostering a work environment in which each individual's diversity is valued. We believe diversity includes a wide range of individual characteristics including gender, age, race, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, political affiliation, marital status, disability, and geographic background. We are committed to taking full advantage of our collective diversity to promote greater diversity and inclusiveness at our Firm. We believe that diversity engenders innovation and understanding, which supports our commitment to provide our clients with the highest quality legal services. We believe that we can create an advantage for our clients and ourselves from our differences to build a richer community.
OUR PRACTICE—OBERMAYER DIVERSITY COMMITTEE
Our Firm, through its Diversity Committee, has adopted several initiatives to promote diversity and inclusiveness. The Committee, chaired by the Firm’s Diversity Partner, Joseph J. Centeno, is comprised of three working groups:
- The Recruitment Group works to broaden the diversity of the Firm’s candidate pool.
- The Retention Group supports and maintains the Firm’s already diverse work environment through regular events, employee surveys and mentoring initiatives.
- The Communication Group coordinates with outside organizations regarding the Firm’s internal diversity projects and its external efforts to support diverse causes and programs.
The work of the Diversity Committee demonstrates the Firm’s commitment to respecting the contributions of all employees. Ultimately, we at Obermayer seek to enhance our organizational culture through leadership, policies and practices.
