Cadwalader Partners Attend Internationally Acclaimed Diversity Seminar

Jan 05, 2009

More than 60 partners of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, one of the world's leading international law firms, attended Stephen Young's internationally acclaimed seminar, "MicroInequities: The Power of Small™." The program is presented by Insight Education Systems.

The Young seminar is the latest effort in Cadwalader's ongoing commitment to diversity, which includes training, mentoring and pipeline initiatives. "MicroInequities," which is highly interactive, focuses on identifying and avoiding the subtle, usually subconscious messages sent that devalue, discourage, and ultimately impair the performance of associates within a workplace.

"Stephen Young's seminar, with its emphasis on fostering an environment in which minority associates can prosper, is a great fit for our diversity goals at Cadwalader," said Jeremiah DeBerry, Cadwalader's Director of Diversity. "To succeed in promoting diversity at the firm, we must be sure that we have created a supportive and inclusive work environment in which minority lawyers have equal access to challenging and rewarding assignments, superior professional development opportunities, and opportunities to make meaningful contributions to the firm."

"We are proud of the firm's commitment to fostering diversity and fully support the message delivered by Stephen Young," said Christopher White, Cadwalader's Chairman.

The partners were so enthusiastic about the event that they have arranged for Cadwalader's special counsel and senior associates to attend the training program in the future.
