Nyemaster Goode Commits to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Pledge
June 24, 2021
Nyemaster Goode has committed to complete the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Pledge developed by the Iowa State Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. The Pledge consists of voluntary, concrete action items that lawyers and law firms can take to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive legal profession in Iowa.
The pledge contains more than two dozen items listed in two categories: Internal (policy, hiring, and HR-related) and External (community and outreach based). Firms committing to the pledge agree to complete a set number of these items (based on the size of their organization) between April 1, 2021 and April 1, 2022. A complete list of the items included in the pledge is available here.
“Through our efforts in the community and the leadership of our Diversey & Inclusion Committee, Nyemaster has already championed a number of the practices contained in the pledge,” said Coreen Sweeney, Nyemaster Goode chair. “We welcome the opportunity to work with Iowa’s law firms and lawyers to make increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the legal profession a priority.”
