Firm leadership is invested in the success of our diverse and women attorneys and have designed talent management programs to help them navigate the firm success¬fully. Key programs include:

Diversity talent management programs at every career level that focus on training, career development, advancement and promotion, including our “Basic Training Program” for junior attorneys, “Business Development Boot Camp” for women, “Base Camp” for mid-level attorneys, and our nationally recognised Sponsorship Program for senior diverse attorneys who are being considered for promotion at the firm; and
Robust affinity networks, including our Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI), that support, mentor and ally relationships. The WLI meets regularly to develop new initiatives – and advance current ones – that invest in the professional development of the firm’s women attorneys.
