What do diversity and inclusion mean at Cleary Gottlieb? Simply put, you will feel part of the firm from the day you arrive, and be in a position to seize opportunities throughout your career.
A key reason: our Committee on Diversity and Inclusion promotes open exchanges about diversity matters and drives changes. The Committee is comprised of senior and junior lawyers who meet regularly. We also have an outside consultant who has worked with us on diversity issues for more than a decade.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Committee's agenda covers a wide and visible set of issues that range from inclusion to professional development. An important example: it teams with the Associates Committee to address mentoring, training and work assignments for lawyers from diverse backgrounds.
Cleary Gottlieb also displays its diversity and inclusion in other ways: in our lawyers' interests and experiences. Among our lawyers are former journalists, policemen, teachers, members of the Peace Corps and a minister.
Perhaps the most distinguishing part of our culture: a sense of openness and acceptance. No subject is taboo, no topic out of bounds.
In short, you will find Cleary Gottlieb a compelling place to work – and diverse in the broadest sense of the word.
