Gallagher Sharp LLP believes that there is strength in diversity and inclusion. Our commitment to diversity is reflected in how we recruit, hire, promote, and evaluate personnel. We seek those with diverse backgrounds and perspectives and the qualities and qualifications to serve our clients. We achieve diversity through multiple initiatives.
Recruitment, Retention & Inclusion
Gallagher Sharp LLP not only strives to recruit and hire diverse attorneys and staff but also maintains practices for retention and inclusion. We participate in minority job fairs and our attorneys have mentored minority law students.
Gallagher Sharp LLP is developing its workforce by including diversity education and training, and by providing quarterly luncheons for attorneys and staff. These luncheons have involved presentations on several cultures as well as representatives from various organizations such as the Cleveland Sight Center and the Anti-Defamation League.
Gallagher Sharp LLP is active in professional and community organizations and outreach programs that promote and support diversity and inclusion. We support annual events like the Cleveland Asian Festival, the Norman S. Minor Bar Association’s Trailblazer Luncheon, and the Black Law Students Scholarship Luncheon at Cleveland-Marshall Law School. We also participate in Harvest for Hunger fund drives, and our attorneys are involved in a variety of civic and volunteer organizations such as Legal Aid, Anti-Defamation League, Greater Toledo Urban League, MotivAsians for Cleveland, Kiwanis and Lions Clubs.
Gallagher Sharp LLP has filed an Affirmative Action Plan which has been approved by the State of Ohio. Our Diversity Committee meets on a monthly basis to discuss the firm’s initiatives in fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion, where everyone has an opportunity to advance and excel. We are dedicated to continuing our efforts in achieving firm diversity.
