Our Commitment to Diversity
Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell’s commitment to diversity in the workplace starts at the top, and extends to the entire firm. We believe that our workforce should be reflective of the diverse marketplace in which we do business as well as within the local communities in which we serve.
We actively recruit African-American, Hispanic, women, and other minority attorneys historically under-represented in the legal field. In an increasingly diverse economy and legal system, Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell views its commitment to inclusiveness and diversity as one of our greatest strengths. We extend employment on the basis of merit, qualifications, and competence, and our firm has a record of hiring highly qualified women and minority candidates for summer associate, associate, and partner positions. But recruiting is only the first step. We have also taken active steps in developing a mentoring program to foster professional development for minority junior partners and associates.
Our commitment to our clients is to provide innovative legal services. We recognize that diverse backgrounds and cultures bring new and different perspectives that promote creativity and new ideas.
Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell has a strict policy against discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, disability, military service, or any other category protected by law. This non-discrimination policy governs all aspects of employment, promotion, compensation, assignment, and other terms and conditions of employment. Our offices comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and state law providing accessibility for people with disabilities. As the legal marketplace continues to change, we are committed to continually looking for new opportunities and approaches to increasing diversity within the firm.
