Diversity, equity, and inclusion is a core value at Jenner & Block, and this year’s edition of Equal Time celebrates the firm’s programs and successes of 2021 and 2022.
In 2001, Jenner & Block created a newsletter to celebrate our LGBTQ community. Believed to be the first of its kind in the legal community, that original, eight-page newsletter grew over the years to showcase the accomplishments of our women lawyers and lawyers of color, as well.
This year’s report highlights four key elements of our DEI initiatives: advancing diverse lawyers and professional staff in their fields, leading the way to a more inclusive workplace, advocating for social justice in the courts, and celebrating the diversity of our Jenner & Block family.
For the first time, Equal Time has migrated from a print product to a digital, multimedia platform. And yet its mission remains the same as it was when we launched it 21 years ago – to shine a spotlight on our commitment to a firm and profession that better reflects the communities in which we live.
