Diversity, equity, and inclusion are foundational values that lie at the heart of our firm. We care deeply about the representation of our varied identities and differences, and are committed to ensuring fair treatment and equality of opportunity for all. By embracing a culture of belonging that actively invites and values the contributions of all our attorneys and staff, our professionals thrive in a rich and meaningful work environment while using their unique backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences to create innovative legal solutions for our clients.
Ulmer’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee guides our firm in its commitment to these principles, working to foster an inclusive culture both inside and outside of our firm. As unrest and anguish over age-old problems of racism and bias have come to the forefront of our national dialogue, we are renewed in our dedication to support the communities in which we live through the pursuit of racial and social justice, charitable giving, community involvement, and the provision of pro bono services.
Ulmer’s Women in Law and Leadership (UB WILL) initiative is a driving force behind the firm’s efforts to attract, retain, and advance women lawyers. This initiative is a critical component of Ulmer’s broader diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, and promotes the successes of women internally at the firm and externally among the firm’s female clients. UB WILL brings women professionals together to network and celebrate achievements, and provides a platform that our women lawyers and clients can use to share their stories.
To us, the practice of law instills a deep responsibility to give back to the communities we are proud to represent. Please read below to find out more about our team’s ongoing commitment to support diversity, equity, and inclusion.
