Goldberg Segalla has been ranked in The American Lawyer’s annual Diversity Scorecard, a ranking of law firms based on the percentage of diverse lawyers in their U.S. offices. The firm ranked 75 on the list of Am Law 200 firms, moving more than 20 spots up from last year.
The Diversity Scorecard records the average number of full-time-equivalent diverse attorneys—African American, Asian American, Latino or Hispanic, Native American, and self-described multiracial attorneys—at Am Law 200 and National Law Journal 250 law firms.
To put our philosophy and commitment into practice, we have a Diversity Task Force in place to conceptualize and implement diversity-focused programs as well as give diversity a voice in our decision-making at the highest level. The individuals on this task force share the firm’s strong commitment to increasing diversity, and they use their unique experiences and backgrounds to support and advance that goal. The team meets regularly to create programs, schedule events, establish diversity initiatives both inside and outside of the firm, set long-term goals, and develop the strategy to recruit and retain people from diverse backgrounds.
