Statement of Values

Diversity and inclusion are core values of Fredrikson. To best serve our clients, we provide innovative solutions to legal needs by cultivating a diverse workforce.

Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

We recognize that a statement alone will not help us achieve a more diverse workforce. Intentional steps and actions directed at hiring and retaining lawyers of diverse backgrounds is imperative.

Fredrikson’s diversity and inclusion initiatives are led by a committee composed of board members, division representatives, associates, and professionals from our business development, recruiting and diversity teams. The committee is responsible for creating and promoting opportunities for education and dialogue throughout the firm, while also supporting the firm’s efforts to retain more effectively attorneys and staff of diverse backgrounds.

Feedback from our current attorneys and staff of diverse backgrounds, as well as from those who have left the firm, is an important component in helping us to learn more about their overall experiences at the firm, identify what obstacles to success they have encountered, and uncover opportunities for improvement. This feedback is extremely important to creating an atmosphere in which all Fredrikson employees feel they can succeed.

Pursuit of diversity and inclusion as core values enables our firm to be a home where professionals and staff who reflect the diversity of our community can achieve success and career fulfillment–individual by individual–which will enrich the professional and personal experience of everyone at Fredrikson.

We acknowledge both the moral and business imperatives for promoting diversity and inclusion within our firm and community. Our clients inspire us to create diverse teams of individuals in order to provide innovative solutions to their legal needs.
