Montgomery Barnett is committed to diversity
When It Comes To Diversity, We Have a Global Perspective!
At Montgomery Barnett, we're all about people – all kinds of
people – and the power of their ideas. Because our practice extends
globally, we seek men and women from diverse backgrounds in order to build
a law firm that's as diversified as our client base.
Montgomery Barnett is committed to being a diverse workplace that reflects
the diverse community in which we live and work. We firmly believe that
a diverse workforce makes us a better law firm. It enables us to bring
a broader perspective to the problems our clients face, leads to a higher
quality of work, and also enriches the work atmosphere itself. Accordingly,
it is the goal of the Firm to foster and maintain a firm-wide culture
that supports and promotes diversity, so that all attorneys, regardless
of their background, feel welcome, included, valued, supported, and able
Montgomery Barnett seeks to recruit, retain, and promote attorneys who
are diverse in every sense of the word. In addition to supporting the
professional careers of women and racial and ethnic minorities, the Firm
believes that our clients benefit from the varying perspectives and life
experiences that individuals with other types of diverse backgrounds bring
to our Firm. To that end, the Firm has taken a number of specific and
deliberate steps to implement its commitment to diversity.
The Firm has signed and is committed to the Diversity Pledge distributed
by the National Bar Association. At Montgomery Barnett, we foster a highly
productive work environment that treats all employees with respect, values
diverse perspectives, encourages individual growth and achievement and
rewards people based on their performance.
The Firm participates in events sponsored by the Minority Corporate Counsel
Association. Some of our lawyers are members of the Louis A Martinet Society,
and have served as Co-General Counsel to the National Bar Association
during the Presidency of Clyde Bailey. As a part of its commitment to
diversity in the work place, the Firm participates in diversity job fairs
sponsored by various entities. For years its partners have participated
in the Orientation of Minority Law Students at Tulane University. The
Firm sponsors the membership of its members and encourages active participation
in such organizations as: 100 Black Men (a national benevolent organization
that sponsors activities for the underprivileged), Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc.
(the oldest African-American fraternity in the United States), and Southeast
Louisiana Legal Services (an entity that provides legal services to the
underprivileged). Our partners are members of the Corporate Counsel Section
of the National Bar Association and have contributed articles to its publications.
We are constantly looking for opportunities to promote diversity in the
demographics of our work world.
At Montgomery Barnett, we value you because of how you think, what you
can contribute, and the potential of all you can become.
