Celebrating 75 Years of Serving Nevada’s Legal, Business, Government, and Civic Communities

Diversity in Practice: McDonald Carano Highlighted in Nevada Lawyer Magazine

“Diversity in Practice” is the cover story of the June 2023 issue of Nevada Lawyer magazine published by the State Bar of Nevada. A feature article describes the launch of the State Bar’s “Partners in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program” and McDonald Carano is proud to be included in the article as the first law firm to earn the DEI Medallion through this new program. The program was created to recognize firms that have already incorporated DEI initiatives into their law practices and to share their success stories to inspire others.

As Mackenzie Warren Kay explains in the article, “While McDonald Carano is incredibly proud to be the first law firm to receive the DEI Medallion – it’s the work behind the accolade that matters. We plan to use the medallion as a continuous reminder that, while grateful for the small head start, there is much work to be done. McDonald Carano understands that DEI is essential to our future, and we are committed to putting in the work to earn that medallion each day.” The medallion is awarded to firms that complete at least five DEI initiatives in the categories of recruitment, retention, pipeline and community programs, and coaching and training. McDonald Carano completed more than 10 initiatives and additional DEI programs are underway. 

We congratulate all firms that have earned the medallion and encourage you to read the June issue to gather ideas and best practices. The magazine is available at https://nvbar.org/nvlawyermagazine/june-2023/
