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.
