Moving the Needle, Together

From all over the United States, Inclusiveness and Diversity Committee members take inclusiveness and diversity seriously, with a focus on systems and structures and developing and following a firmwide inclusiveness and diversity strategic plan. However, the 11 Committee members themselves will tell you that at Kutak Rock, it’s about encouraging every individual to participate vis a vie whatever role they have in the firm and in their community.

The result is the Firm’s Inclusiveness and Diversity Forum: an effort involving hundreds of people across Kutak Rock in a host of activities. Everyone at the firm is welcome to participate in and help shape training and education programs, affinity group activities, and pipeline programs for young people.
