About Clark Hill’s Commitment to Diversity:
Insisting on creating our own strong, diverse workforce is the most powerful way to demonstrate our commitment to these principles. Clark Hill’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee directs three core programs that serve as the cornerstones of our effort to make the firm a welcoming workplace and to effectively prepare the leaders of the future:
ClarkHill THRIVE, emphasizing the value of multiculturalism
ClarkHill BOLD, preparing and promoting women for leadership
ClarkHill PRIDE, elevating and supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning (LGBTQ) lawyers, professionals and staff
The strategies and initiatives within each of these core programs work together to increase the representation of women, minorities and others at every level of the firm, including in management and attorney leadership. Examples of these initiatives include the addition of domestic partnership benefits, updates to our parental-leave and reduced-work arrangements, and career-path alternatives to positively impact the long-term professional prospects of our people.
