At White and Steele, diversity is not an initiative; it is ingrained in our firm culture. We are committed to creating an inclusive atmosphere where mutual respect is part of our everyday work environment. We recognize that different perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences enhance our organization. We foster a work environment that ensures that no one’s professional growth, experience, or advancement is limited because of race, color, sex, religion, creed, ethnic or national origin, ancestry, age, disability, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or domestic partner status. We recognize that recruitment without retention is counterproductive. Our collegial environment is designed to provide guidance to new attorneys during their early practice years. Our approach to mentoring is individualized, not rigid.
White and Steele is an active member of the Center for Legal Inclusiveness, an organization dedicated to increasing the number of diverse attorneys recruited, hired, and promoted by law firms in Colorado. As part of its outreach efforts, White and Steele participates in the Colorado Pledge to Diversity 1L Summer Clerkship Program, a program which introduces diverse law students to our firm with the long-term goal of increasing diverse hiring and retention.
White and Steele’s Diversity and Inclusiveness Committee helps the firm follow the principle that diversity and inclusiveness are essential to our success. The Committee works to enhance the firm’s legal excellence, leadership, collaboration, and community by fostering new ideas, recognizing successes, and providing guidance regarding diversity and inclusiveness.
