Stevens & Lee is committed to hiring, training and retaining talented professional and staff personnel from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of characteristics. All Stevens & Lee people share a fundamental belief that inclusion, respect and fair treatment help us harness our different strengths and experiences for the greater benefit of our clients and for the good of our firm.
In order to strengthen our firm through diversity we actively seek opportunities to recruit men and women from minority populations, both directly from school and also from the ranks of experienced professionals. We recruit at law schools that have significant minority populations and we work hard to identify and recruit experienced lawyers from diverse backgrounds who might be interested in joining us.
We encourage expressions of interest in Stevens & Lee careers from talented people without regard to age, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, special physical abilities, status as a military veteran, or other different characteristics.
Stevens & Lee’s commitment to diversity is not limited to creating a diverse population within our own firm. Stevens & Lee also is committed to actively working with state and local bar associations, community groups, high schools, colleges, and universities to accomplish the broader objective of assuring that people from minority groups are encouraged and enabled to participate in and thus strengthen the American legal profession.
In recent years Stevens & Lee has participated as a sponsor in Managing Partners’ Diversity Initiative of Dauphin and Lancaster Counties, has participated in local and national minority lawyer job fairs, and has been recognized for its participation in the efforts of the Association of Corporate Counsel of Central Pennsylvania and the Keystone Bar Association to support a Street Law Program and a scholarship program named for former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert N.C. Nix, a leading African-American lawyer and judge.
We aim to accomplish even more and we therefore encourage talented and energetic people who are interested in becoming part of a diverse and interesting professional services firm to consider joining us as we seek to increase diversity within our firm and the legal profession and thus strengthen the delivery of professional services to clients in our increasingly diverse population.
