Her Philosophy: At Greenberg Traurig, we believe that when our colleagues are free to bring their authentic selves to work, we can achieve true diversity.
In 2022, we will continue to expand our strategic plan for diversity, equity, and inclusion by listening to our folks at GT and to our communities, and we will continue to take this feedback and turn it into action with measurable success. We also look forward to collaborating with existing and new clients to make changes that will transform societies across all regions where GT has a presence.
Greenberg Traurig’s DE&I 2022 theme, Empower | Amplify | Act, will mobilize diversity and inclusion discussions and empower colleagues to speak on issues that matter inside and outside of our organization, amplify the voices that advance our firm’s commitment, and act toward changes that allow us to meet our ever-evolving goals.
Our firm will continue to hold discussions that highlight our differences, and add to our collective culture and pool of skills and talents. This will allow us to continue to build our teams, strengthen our communities, source a more representative firm culture, and invigorate our client relationships and services.
Systemic racism, implicit biases, economic disruptions, and political upheaval are all challenges to creating a more diverse and just society. We regularly partner with clients to further their and our objectives in this area, and will continue to do so. Our DE&I Leadership has developed and streamlined our DE&I training and programming.
