How diverse is DWT?
Diversity and inclusion are central to who we are and what we do at Davis Wright Tremaine. We define diversity not only in terms of race, gender, or sexual orientation, but also in ideas, perspectives, personality, work
style, age, and more. Diversity and inclusion are what enable us to work smarter, bring out the best of what each individual has to offer, and ultimately build strong and lasting connections with each other, our clients,
and our communities. We are committed to building a law firm where talented professionals of all backgrounds can flourish and succeed. We recognize that one size does not fit all and our goal is to make sure that creativity
and innovation are encouraged and rewarded. We strongly believe that diversity and inclusion are fundamental to these efforts.

A domestic partner is offered the same coverage as a spouse, except premiums are paid on an after-tax basis. We offer coverage on medical, dental and supplemental life insurance for spouses and domestic partners.
Do you have a paid parental leave policy?
Yes, we have a paid parental leave policy for both exempt and non-exempt employees that provide one-half of their pay for up to eight (8) weeks during leave. Staff are eligible for this benefit after six months of employment.
Sick and vacation hours, to the extent accrued and available, would make up the other half of their pay unless applicable law requires otherwise.

There is a discounted backup emergency childcare/eldercare program available and can be used up to 10 days/uses per year. There are copays associated with this benefit. We offer dependent care flexible spending account
which allows you to put aside up to $5,000 per household using pre-tax dollars.
