We have long been committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace that provides opportunities for lawyers and staff of all backgrounds. To that end, we prioritize investments in resources, training, and development programs that improve the recruitment, retention, and advancement within Chapman and in support of diversity and inclusion programs within our client organizations.
