Obermayer has long promoted diversity and inclusion, both within the firm and throughout the communities where we live and work. We are proud of our tradition of fostering cultures and places where individual diversity is not only valued, but celebrated.
We believe diversity engenders innovation and understanding and is a driving force behind how we do business. Because of the backgrounds and experiences of our lawyers, we are better able to understand the needs and objectives of our diverse clients.
Obermayer’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee includes lawyers from across the firm’s departments, members of the hiring committee, and members of the senior management team. The committee develops and implements firm-wide initiatives to attract, retain, and advance the careers of our talented diverse lawyers. It ensures that our lawyers and staff have the opportunity, training, and mentorship to thrive personally and professionally.
Obermayer provides equal opportunities and fair and ethical treatment to all of our employees regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, political affiliation, gender identity or expression, disability, marital status, veteran status, or any other protected category.
Finally, we serve and benefit our local communities and civic organizations through our various sponsorships, our association with affinity groups, and our commitment to the use of diverse and inclusive vendors. While many of our initiatives promote a diverse workforce for our firm, we recognize that our commitment doesn’t stop at our door.
