Model Policy: Nondiscrimination and diversity

Why you need this policy:

The diversity of the 21st century work force has made offering equality of opportunity to individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, or other personal characteristics not related to their professional abilities is not just a legal mandate but an economic imperative.

How this policy helps you:

The key to ensuring diversity and avoiding discrimination in all forms—direct and indirect, deliberate and intentional—is to establish a written diversity policy like this Model Policy.

How to use this policy:

The very idea of a generic, one-size-fits-all diversity policy flies in the face of diversity principles. To do justice to diversity, each law firm must craft its own unique policy, one that doesn’t simply express support for the concept of diversity but sets out the specific things the law firm actually does to promote diversity both in the office and community. However, a Model Policy like the one below, which comes from a number of different actual examples, can help you organize your own policy and ensure it includes all of the important information needed to be effective.
