At Segal McCambridge, we strive to increasingly diversify our workplace. We believe that in order to best represent the interests of our clients who also come from different cultures, backgrounds, lifestyles, belief systems and values, we should hire, develop, retain and promote attorneys and staff reflecting those differences. We further believe that diversity in the workplace encompasses a firm culture that recognizes, appreciates and embraces the differences in each of our experiences and viewpoints.
The Diversity Committee is represented by members from several of our offices, including the following:
- Megan E. Grossman, Chair (Philadelphia)
- Andre E. Harlfinger (New York)
- Jeffrey Singer (Chicago)
- Sylvia Bokyung St. Clair (Chicago)
- Cameron Turner (Chicago)
The Diversity Committee meets monthly to monitor and discuss the implementation of policies that address the issues of recruiting, retaining and promoting qualified attorneys in all offices with the goal of increasing the diversity of the firm. The Diversity Committee also ensures policies are implemented and actively promoted throughout the firm, which include increased participation in community involvement, attorney development and pro bono work. The Diversity Committee also concentrates on proactively searching for new opportunities and approaches to promoting diversity within the firm.
