We are focused on aggressively pursuing more education, training and diversity employment initiatives. C&W, through its leadership and the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee, co-chaired by Mary Ellen Conroy, Esq. and Matthew K. Mitchell, Esq., remains committed to fostering a culture of inclusion that values attorneys with diverse experiences and perspectives and allows us to better serve our clients.
Each of our 15 offices in 8 states and the District of Columbia have representative partners on the Committee, as well as dedicated staff responsible for carrying out the initiatives of the Committee. With the full support of C&W’s leadership, our efforts to bring diversity, equity and inclusion is a commitment we take seriously.
