Swift Currie's commitment to diversity

Swift Currie continues to grow as one of the nation’s leading litigation firms, and the firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion also continues to evolve. Swift Currie is committed to hiring, retaining and developing diverse and qualified attorneys and staff regardless of race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, LGBTQ identification, ability status, background or veteran status. We understand the goal is not only to increase diversity in numbers, but also focus on retention and foster a culture of belonging by valuing all perspectives, experiences, backgrounds and viewpoints. Swift Currie understands the more we hold fast to that vision, the more it will result in a truly inclusive firm culture, which also allows us to offer more innovative services to our clients. We believe the diversity in skills, viewpoints and backgrounds make us a stronger and more productive firm. We understand achieving the pinnacle of diversity and inclusivity is a marathon, not a sprint, and we are committed to the task. 

Women's History Month 2021: Honoring Influential Women

Swift Currie proudly celebrates Women’s History Month 2021 by honoring all the women who have contributed to our culture, history, society and the law. On International Women’s Day, we especially honor the women who, throughout all history, have fought for gender equity in all areas and paved the way for others. From the first observance of Women’s Day in New York in 1909 to Congress passing legislation in 1987 to formalize Women’s History Month, women have been instrumental in pushing for gender equality and diversity in the workplace and its intersectionality with race and ethnicity. Like many law firms, our original founders were all male. However, today, Swift Currie is well above the national average for the percentage of women attorneys and the percentage women partners within the firm. The firm's success and innovation of services provided to our clients are largely due to the contributions of the women at our firm over its 55-year history.

In 2021, the Women’s History Month theme is “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced.” Please join us throughout the month as some of our own women attorneys honor a notable woman in history or personally known to them who have influenced their life or career.

Black History Month 2021: Celebrating Black Heroes

Swift Currie is celebrating Black History Month through a “Celebrating Black Heroes” weekly series. Each week, employees share — in their own words — Black heroes who have inspired them and had a positive impact on their lives.

The stories are heartfelt, inspiring and provide the opportunity to highlight not only well-known heroes, but also unknown or even forgotten African Americans who have made an indelible impact on our society, history, culture or their individual life. Through the power of story telling, our employees are not only honoring these heroes in their own way, but also learning that we all share more in common than we have in differences. Check back each week throughout February 2021 to read more of these stories.

Diversity Initiatives 

Swift Currie’s Diversity Committee is dedicated to leading the efforts of diversity, inclusion and awareness in the firm and the community. With the support of the firm’s Executive Committee and leadership, the Diversity Committee develops a strategic plan every year to focus on the firm’s diversity initiatives in the areas of recruitment and retention efforts, awareness, education, pipeline initiatives, affinity group sponsorships, professional development, mentorship and diversity news and workshops.
