Culture, Diversity & Inclusion Committee

Comprised of Lathrop GPM’s Managing Partner and appointed partners, firm administrative leaders, and staff members, Lathrop GPM’s Culture, Diversity & Inclusion (CD&I) Committee has representation and support throughout the firm's footprint. 

The committee works to foster an atmosphere of inclusion, and monitors diverse attorney and staff recruitment, advancement, and retention. It focuses on long-range goals and CD&I plan implementation, with an emphasis on elevating firm-wide cultural competency, increasing opportunities for underrepresented attorneys and staff, and growing implicit bias understanding. By tracking accountable progress towards the firm’s comprehensive CD&I strategy, the committee encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees, and connects Lathrop GPM closer to our clients and communities.
