At Kelley Drye, we view diversity not as a destination, but as a pathway we are traveling – one that requires commitment, learning and significant personal change on everyone’s part. We have integrated Diversity and Inclusion into our core values, and they drive our approaches to recruiting, training, workplace policy-making and community involvement. More important, we are deeply committed to making diversity a force for innovation, which benefits our clients every day and which makes Kelley Drye a place where people of all backgrounds, races and cultures can work together and thrive.
Venetta Amory, Diversity Director
Diversity and Inclusion are core values at Kelley Drye. They reflect how we conduct business with one another and our clients.
Kelley Drye & Warren's commitment to diversity and equal opportunity in the practice of law encourages us to devote significant time and resources to the recruitment and retention of the most qualified attorneys regardless of race, gender, gender expression and gender identity, religious affiliation, age, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, veteran status or physical capability. This commitment is essential to the creation of a workplace that welcomes differences amongst our employees. However, our focus is not limited to these important characteristics alone.
We embrace these, as well as other, less defined aspects of our employees' individuality, such as varying perspectives and different life experiences. This allows us to cultivate an environment that values inclusion: one that celebrates the uniqueness of our employees and empowers them to succeed. This approach contributes to our collective growth and success as a firm.
