As a firm, promoting a welcoming and safe environment have always been a priority, but recent events have surfaced new ways of affirming our commitment to our people and our communities. We take pride in our diverse backgrounds and experiences – inclusive of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, creed, national origin, age, ancestry, disability (physical or mental), medical condition, citizenship, marital status, pregnancy, veteran or military status, genetic information or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
Our differences bring us together as we continue to ask questions and learn along the journey.
Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during May in the United States.
