Jennings Strouss continues to promote diversity by recruiting and retaining highly qualified individuals who represent diversity of opinion, personal experience and demographics. Our goal is to maintain and nurture this diversity in an environment that fosters excellence, achievement, and advancement of all qualified individuals regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, disability, religion, or position with the firm.
We retain excellent lawyers through regularly evaluating our recruiting focus, techniques, and strategies. Our recruiting committee continues to target lateral candidates and students with diverse backgrounds and interests from law schools around the country, including those with significant minority enrollments. The committee also is working on an outreach campaign to minority student organizations at various law schools around the country. Other demonstrations of our commitment to diversity are our continuing sponsorship of a law student in the annual Minority Writing Internship Program in coordination with the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, the blueprint of which was created by our firm many years ago, the firm's support of the Black Board of Director's Project and our continuing sponsorship of the Minority Bar Convention and NBA Diversity Pipeline Program.
