Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

McDonald Carano prides itself on our commitment to the communities and clients we serve. Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee assists the firm with constantly evolving best practices and approaches for improving diversity throughout the legal profession and identifying growth opportunities within McDonald Carano. From internal surveys and training programs to connecting with local high schools, universities and law schools, McDonald Carano knows there are many different and creative ways to deepen our community connections and advance our diversity efforts. For example, McDonald Carano participates in the Professional Development Fellowship Program of the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The program provides diverse law school students with educational and practical experience by pairing them with local legal employers who have a long-term goal of increasing diversity in their hiring and retention.

McDonald Carano also recognizes that real change requires looking inward to acknowledge and understand our own culture, our own diversity composition, and our own paths for improvement. We educate ourselves through important and ongoing conversations, and the insights we gain help us better serve and advocate for our clients and communities. We believe in doing well by doing good, and that requires listening, learning, investing in, and making meaningful change. Creating an environment where everyone feels that they are valued, welcome, and belong will only strengthen McDonald Carano’s legacy. We continue to work to do better every day. Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee looks forward to sharing information about our efforts on this page. For example, we invite you to click here and help us honor and celebrate the outstanding women who lead and inspire our firm.
