Kasowitz Diversity and Women’s Committees Receive 2021 Diversity Award from Profiles in Diversity Journal
Kasowitz Benson Torres’ Diversity & Inclusion Committee and Women’s Initiatives Committee have been awarded a 2021 Diversity Teams Award from Profiles in Diversity Journal. The award recognizes the talented and dedicated team members who work together to support and advance diversity, inclusion, and equity in their respective organizations. The award also celebrates the inclusivity that diverse individuals, working together as members of a team, represent.
Kasowitz’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee strives to recruit and support a diverse team of attorneys, and to integrate our diversity initiatives into the professional development of all lawyers. The Committee also ensures the firm promotes a collaborative culture in which every person, regardless of age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, religious affiliation or other defining characteristic, can thrive and develop their skills to the highest level.
Kasowitz’s Women’s Initiatives Committee, which includes women partners, counsel, associates and business professionals, focuses on firm-wide efforts to establish a platform for our women lawyers to develop business and grow professionally. The Committee coordinates an informal mentoring program involving regular social events to provide the opportunity for our women attorneys to interact with a diverse group of women within the firm.
