Benesch values and promotes the diversity of its attorneys and staff. Dedication to diversity helps the firm to attract and retain talented employees, enhances its relationships with current clients, and expands the firm’s market share. The firm is committed to realizing and maintaining an environment that welcomes and embraces diversity, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, and religious beliefs. In support of the firm’s commitment, the Executive Committee established a Diversity & Inclusion Committee and endorses the key values developed by the Committee. These key values are designed to promote an environment in which differences are respected, employees are treated fairly, and individual skills and talents are valued.
Our DEI Committee is composed of 11 attorneys and senior staff members, receives the full support of our Executive Committee, and provides diversity and inclusion training to all members of our firm.
The Committee, in collaboration with firm leadership, has adopted
a multi-year DEI Strategic Plan that is aimed at increasing Benesch’s momentum and impact in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion.
We’re committed to giving great people
incredible opportunities to grow and thrive.”
