Statement on Commitment to Diversity
O'Melveny & Myers LLP celebrates and values the diversity of all of our staff and lawyers.
As a leading international law firm representing clients in virtually every sector of the global economy, we recognize our collective diversity as a strength and an asset that promotes uncompromising excellence in our work, fosters distinctive leadership in the legal profession and in the communities in which we practice, and cultivates superior citizenship in a rich and dynamic environment in which individuals are respected for their unique styles, contributions, and differences.
At O’Melveny, we continue to commit ourselves to sustaining long-term efforts, ensuring the development and maintenance of a professional environment that attracts, retains and promotes lawyers and staff of all backgrounds — regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, or any other status as defined and protected by applicable law. In short, we embrace our diversity as fundamental to the promotion of our firm’s values and recognize that diversity has an invaluable influence on our firm and all that we aspire to be.
Maintaining our commitment to diversity is the responsibility of the Chair of the Firm, working in collaboration with the Director of Diversity, to promote innovative approaches that will enhance the diversity of our staff and lawyers and will recognize diversity as essential to fulfilling our long-term business objectives. Although O’Melveny — like the legal profession at large — has not yet achieved its fullest potential with respect to diversity, we recognize that true diversity is a journey, not a destination, and we are committed to continuous and demonstrable efforts to achieve a truly diverse firm.
