Actions Speak Louder Than Words
The Maryland Daily Record published an article looking at the diversity efforts and progress of Maryland firms. While the progress is slow, the article does recognize a number of efforts made by firms to change their diversity landscape. Identified prominently in the article is PK Law’s progress as a firm having one of the highest number of female partners.
Everybody is really looking out for each other’s success. A tremendous amount of support is given to developing your practice, your voice and your name . . . creating that culture is a matter of priority on part of the law firm. It takes an effort on the part of firm leadership to be a place that is conducive to people of all types.
– Elizabeth Green, PK Law Estate Planning Attorney/Member
We are incredibly grateful to these firms for their leadership in addressing this challenge. Our profession has talked about the importance of increasing diversity for years. This new collaboration is a significant step toward achieving that goal here in Maryland. I hope every law firm in the state will join us.
