The Diversity & Flexibility Alliance has featured Kutak Rock’s COVID-19 response as a “Bright Spot,” a large or small success that impacts an organization in a positive way. In their article, the Alliance outlines the firm’s initial and ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic including operating procedures, “reason-neutral” remote working policies, promotion of at-home productivity, and ways to build inclusive teams in a remote work environment. The full article is available on the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance website.
Kutak Rock’s commitment to diversity and inclusion has not suffered during the months-long pandemic. In fact, the firm has met all goals in its three-year strategic plan and has begun the next three-year plan. The firm has also continued its annual training program, and affinity groups continue to meet via Zoom. In addition, attorneys and staff created a new Mindfulness Group to address mental and physical health.
The Diversity & Flexibility Alliance is a think tank that works closely with law firms, financial services firms, and corporations to understand their cultures as well as their distinct diversity and flexibility challenges and opportunities. Further, the Alliance helps create strategic, practical solutions adapted to business needs to develop a high-performance culture that embraces diversity and flexibility.
