Commitment To Diversity
Last Updated: Wednesday, May 8, 2013
We understand that a truly great company is only as strong and effective as the people who work within it. We wholeheartedly believe that our success
is the direct result of a dedication from within to promote a workforce that reflects the community we both serve and value.
end, we are committed to fostering an environment that is both richly diverse, and one that continues to attract
and embrace the best and brightest minds. We will always strive to create a dynamic atmosphere in order to consistently generate fresh ideas and perspectives.
It is our mission to encourage growth and rewarding performances from everyone in our organization.
The Law Office of Stephen M. Dodd is an equal employment opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color,
citizenship status, national origin, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation or preference, age, religion, creed, disability, condition of pregnancy,
marital status, physical disability, veteran status, political affiliation, or any other factor protected by U.S. or Massachusetts law.
Diversity has enriched the business community in every segment of the globe, promoting underlying themes of
tolerance and respect.
However, the concept of diversity is not uniform. We are aware of and acknowledge the cultural differences that shape varying conceptions of diversity
as they manifest in law and in business. Our vision for diversity incorporates and provides for all such differences in the very spirit of the concept itself.
A Culture of inclusiveness
Our diversity vision starts with cultivating an environment that is inclusive of all employees.
Individual differences present us with opportunities to examine business issues from varying perspectives.
Incorporating these different viewpoints gives us greater agility and room to grow.
To effectively compete in a crowded marketplace of law firms, we believe in the strength of a unified team fully engaged in meaningful work.
Our law office believes in diversity in both thought and experience because it helps us lead in every aspect of our work.
We encourage a creative, diverse environment marked by an unwavering respect for the individual and his or her background.
By doing so, we know the best ideas will surface from anywhere within our organization.
Fairness in hiring
We are committed to hiring, promoting, and compensating employees based on their qualifications and demonstrated ability to perform job responsibilities,
nothing more and nothing less. Our staff is comprised of enthusiastic, innovative self-starters who thrive in a fast-moving, creative environment.
If you are talented, highly motivated, exceedingly hardworking and passionate about your skill-set, then we want to hear from you.
Since our founding, we have demonstrated a steadfast and ongoing commitment to people and to fair employment practices.
We believe diversity helps us realize our full potential. Recognizing and developing the talents of
every individual brings new ideas to the fore. We benefit from the creativity and innovation that results when our people who have different
experiences, perspectives, and cultures work together. This is what drives innovative ways of solving problems and high performance.
We always have believed that a well-managed, diverse work force expands our base of
knowledge, our skills, and cross-cultural understanding.
That, in turn, enables us to understand, relate, and respond
to our diverse and changing customers. Our overall commitment is reflected in our diversity and inclusion philosophy.
