At MWH Law Group, diversity and inclusion are not hollow “check the box” buzzwords. Rather, diversity and inclusion is in our DNA. We don’t need a Chief Diversity Officer or Diversity Committee to demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We are dedicated to elevating the legal profession by ensuring that diverse lawyers have a seat at the table in government, private practice, the judiciary and legal departments.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is demonstrated by our lawyers’ work in creating one of the leading organizations focused on creating opportunities for women and minority-owned law firms – The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF). NAMWOLF’s work has been transformative. NAMWOLF is responsible for the tremendous growth in the number of minority and women-owned law firms in the United States and hundreds of millions of dollars in legal work referred to those firms.
Additionally, our lawyers have played leadership roles in the Minority In House Counsel Association; State Bar of Wisconsin Diversity Counsel Program and the Commercial Law Section of the National Bar Association. We also assist major corporations and governmental entities in developing and strengthening their diversity programs. It is our belief that the legal profession is better when diverse lawyers are able to access opportunities in every aspect of the profession.
