Sedgwick is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment that welcomes and supports the development and advancement of individuals of all backgrounds. A diverse workforce is essential to our ability to provide our clients with the best possible legal services and to create an atmosphere in which all our people thrive.
While we recognize there are many similarities in the ways in which attorneys experience the firm, we understand that attorneys who are members of groups traditionally under-represented in large law firms may have different experiences.
Sedgwick established the LGBT Action Committee to further the firm's commitment to the LGBT community as a whole, provide a supportive social and professional community for LGBT individuals within the firm, and enhance the inclusive environment of the firm overall. One way Sedgwick achieves these goals is through participation in organizations such as the National LGBT Bar Association, Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and Lambda Legal. Our firm has been recognized for our efforts by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, which named Sedgwick one of the best places to work for LGBT employees.
