Lewis and Roca is as committed to the diversity of the profession as a whole and the communities in which its lawyers practice as it is to the diversity of the firm itself. To that end, we support a variety of charitable and community activities that increase the diversity of the bar and the community as a whole:
Lewis and Roca led a Law Firm Initiative to fund the Anti-Defamation League’s “World of Difference” peer training program in Arizona high schools, and supports community organizations such as the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Arizona Women’s Education and Employment, Chicanos por la Causa, the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation, the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, the Greater Phoenix Urban League, and the Phoenix Indian Center.
Recognizing the fact that there is insufficient minority representation on the bench, Lewis and Roca along with the Pima County Commission on Trial Court Appointments and the Arizona Minority Bar Association organized a seminar to encourage and inform potential minority candidates for judicial appointment in Arizona. We have also been the proud sponsor of similar programs such as the Arizona State Bar’s Leadership Institute and the programs of diversity bar organizations in our communities.
Our firm’s lawyers share that commitment, giving of their time and energy to a variety of organizations committed to increasing the diversity and tolerance of the bar and communities in which we practice.
