Paliare Roland is committed to diversity and to creating an inclusive workplace. Our clients are best served by lawyers who understand and reflect the diversity of the community around us. Our firm is best served by having a workplace that challenges the status quo and creates space for all.
Our firm is a really great place of employment for women. It could be our equality of numbers, our fantastic female role models, or our collection of amazing men who actually get it. Half our lawyers are women. We are proud to have created a culture where women not only stay, but thrive and succeed. Women at Paliare Roland have both presence and power at all levels of the firm and are a force to be reckoned with.
As an employer, we have implemented a diversity policy that seeks to enhance diversity and inclusion in recruitment, retention and advancement, and are conducting training sessions for all partners and associates on diversity and unconscious bias. Our office environment is casual, close-knit, and collegial and seeks to break down the barriers found in traditional legal environments.
Paliare Roland’s Diversity Committee is made up of both partners and associates, and coordinates diversity education sessions and supports the work of equity-seeking groups in the legal community.
As a firm, we recognize that there is always more work to be done. We are committed to building on our achievements and doing so with a team strengthened by diverse voices. We welcome applicants from all walks of life. In our hiring, we prioritize candidates with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and achievements. For this reason, we do not use a name-blind recruitment and selection system in student recruitment. We have adopted the partial use of standardized questioning in interviews to focus our assessment on the skills and abilities of candidates.
