Diversity and Inclusion

Parker Milliken is dedicated to delivering the highest quality legal representation to its clients, a commitment that includes recruiting and nurturing the best legal talent. Achieving that goal requires building and maintaining a diverse and talented professional and support staff. To that end, Parker Milliken fosters a work environment that focuses on the value of each attorney’s abilities, background, and potential, and best represents the diverse communities in which it works and the wide range of clients it serves. We believe that assembling attorneys and staff from all walks of life, ethnic and racial backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations and gender identities, with the variety of views and perspectives they bring, helps the firm offer innovative and strategic advice to our clients. This practice also enriches the professional life of attorneys and staff, and gives the firm better access to a more varied clientele and broader markets.

In recruiting attorneys at all levels, we strive to identify and attract minority candidates with strong academic and professional backgrounds. The firm encourages its attorneys to participate in bar and community associations and activities representing diverse communities. Parker Milliken reaches out to minority bar associations and diverse in-house attorneys for suggestions when recruiting attorneys and staff. Experienced Parker Milliken attorneys mentor less seasoned attorneys and offer diverse attorneys opportunities for new practice experiences, meaningful client contact, business development opportunities, and involvement in firm communities. We believe fostering an environment that embraces differences, promotes equal opportunities, and celebrates mutual respect creates a culture where everyone can excel.
