Since I’ve been with the firm, HLB has been deeply committed to improving DEI, and it shows – from its hiring practices, to the involvement of firm leadership in the DEI Committee, to the firm’s implicit bias training program, to allowing attorneys to work part time.

All of our professionals are invited to join the DEI Committee. It is so inspiring to see active participation from some of our most junior associates to our most senior partners, working together for a common goal. Yes, sometimes the conversations are uncomfortable and difficult, but they give rise to stronger relationships and inclusion within the firm.

As a mom who cares deeply about health equity, working at HLB aligns with my values. Our work supporting health care providers has taken on even greater significance during the pandemic, which also underscored the importance of working somewhere I can build a career and a family at the same time.

HLB is making steady progress on prioritizing diversity and inclusion. In particular, HLB has given junior associates such as myself opportunities to build my expertise and business by presenting at firm-sponsored webinars, and also given me the opportunity to take leadership roles on the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.

Our DEI Committee includes active participants from each of our offices and departments.

It’s been edifying to see the developments of the DEI Committee over time. What started initially as a Task Force in 2012 developed into a formal Committee with active participation from all of our Departments and offices with a formalized strategic plan and measured improvement in our overall diversity and inclusion efforts. While we acknowledge there is more work to be done, it is inspiring to participate in the team efforts to move the needle forward.
