We have events celebrating the LGBT community in our firm and in the community, but I do not know whether we have any programs oriented toward hiring, promotion, or mentoring LGBT job candidates, attorneys, and staff.” • “The firm has a pretty active Women’s Initiative that meets monthly and holds regular events.” • “By way of example, we have hired a person with development disabilities through the Best Buddies Jobs Program, which was a great move. Our person through this program is a great choice for a law firm. This firm is very dedicated to these social issues.” • “Tons of female associates, growing cadre of non-equity partners, relatively few equity partners. This is probably not particularly unusual.
