Diversity

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
Our commitment to being a diverse and inclusive place to work is at the core of our vision and our values. The firms that combined to form Hogan Lovells each have a long history of being committed to recruiting, retaining, and promoting lawyers and others with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We believe that promoting diversity is simply the right thing to do and is an integral part of Hogan Lovells. We believe that a culture of inclusion, which respects and values the diversity of all our people, significantly enhances our ability to provide excellent legal services to our clients. 

DIVERSITY POLICY STATEMENT 
Our success as a global firm depends on our ability to attract and retain the brightest, and to foster a work environment where people of all backgrounds and experiences can reach their full potential, regardless of such factors as race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation or disability. To ensure that we embrace diversity fully at Hogan Lovells, our policy is to:
        • treat all with whom we interact with respect and fairness
        • encourage and allow talented individuals with different personalities, points of view, skills and approaches to the provision of legal services to collaborate in an environment of mutual support
        • promote equal opportunity in all areas of employment and prohibit discrimination against or harassment of members of the firm, job applicants and those with whom the firm engages
        • understand better the needs of our diverse client base and the communities in which we live and work
        • continuously monitor the effectiveness of our diversity policy and take proactive measures to advance it.

STRATEGY 
Hogan Lovells has a comprehensive strategy to enhance diversity and ensure an inclusive atmosphere at the firm. We have a global diversity leadership team comprised of firm-wide partners and other professionals, as well as office-specific diversity committees. Our diversity leadership team oversees the firm’s diversity initiatives in the countries in which we work and is a resource to clients in fulfilling their own diversity objectives. To make our vision real, we:
        • recruit, nurture, develop and advance the most talented law students, graduates, lawyers and support personnel
        • engage all members of Hogan Lovells with our diversity agenda and integrate diversity and inclusiveness into all firm activities
        • ensure our workplace policies and processes are inclusive and designed to promote a high-performance culture that values individual contribution, teamwork, innovation and productivity.
