Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is a core value of Keller and Heckman. We are deeply committed to recruiting, hiring, mentoring, and advancing team members of diverse backgrounds and experiences.
At Keller and Heckman, we recognize that our differences strengthen us as individuals and reinforce our abilities collectively. We pride ourselves on the fact that Keller and Heckman is a firm of well-rounded professionals who bring a diverse range of perspectives and backgrounds to our work – key to our ability to provide our clients with the best possible legal counsel. Diversity is a core value, and we are deeply committed to recruiting, hiring, mentoring, and advancing professionals of diverse backgrounds and experiences at Keller and Heckman.
As part of our overall commitment to enhancing diversity in the legal profession, we are a law firm member of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA). Through our involvement with the MCCA and in other fora, we have participated in recruitment and networking opportunities with minority candidates. Because our legal practice often involves a sophisticated blending of law and science, we are able to attract talented students and lawyers of diverse backgrounds who are interested in a technology-based legal practice. We are honored to have recently earned the MCCA Approved 2023 Bronze Seal. MCCA Approved accreditation identifies exemplary development and solutions in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DEI”) in organizations. Since D&I is critical to the success of our firm, we are proud to continue to make sustainable progress towards D&I in our workplace, and we will continue to support initiatives and policies that improve D&I.
Diversity, in all aspects, is a key goal of the Firm, and we have established a Diversity and Inclusion Committee to actively foster and promote this goal. We welcome and encourage diversity within Keller and Heckman at all levels. By joining together people with diverse backgrounds and experiences, including people of color, women, and other groups, we enhance our creativity, our knowledge, and our ability to understand and respond to the needs of our diverse clientele.
