Foley strives to ensure that every inflection point of attorney development is evaluated through a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) lens. By taking a path that reaches throughout the firm – touching recruitment, professional development, business development, our legal departments, practice groups, leadership, and other areas – we continue to make strides in our DEI journey.
“Foley is committed to the success of our talent. Ensuring success requires us to weave diversity, equity, and inclusion into the fabric of the firm, with a focus on its integration throughout the attorney talent development cycle,” Foley’s Director of Diversity & Inclusion Alexis Robertson said.
“While we are proud of our progress during 2021, we recognize that we still have more work to do. Many of the things that most impact DEI are not labeled as DEI, so continued collaboration across the firm is critical as we keep working toward meaningful change at Foley in 2022 and beyond.”
