Inclusiveness

Sherman & Howard L.L.C. recognizes that diversity is critical to the success of the Firm and our clients. We are mindful that a multiplicity of characteristics and skills enhances any organization, and that recruiting, retaining and promoting a diverse group of professionals whose talents are drawn from a broad cross-section of backgrounds enhances our capacity for offering the highest quality legal services to our clients. As a Firm, we recognize that our ability to function at the very highest level of our profession, and to continue to exceed the needs of our diverse range of clients, is enhanced by building a team of lawyers and staff who bring us the benefits of a broad range of socioeconomic, racial, gender, ethnic, religious and personal backgrounds.

Recruiting
Sherman & Howard is a charter signatory in The Colorado Pledge to Diversity Legal Group, which emphasizes the importance of increasing the number of racially and ethnically diverse attorneys recruited, hired and promoted by law firms in Colorado. Sherman & Howard recognizes the importance of having a diverse and inclusive workforce that is reflective of the culture and history of our surrounding community.

Retention

Promotion
Sherman & Howard is proud to have many diverse attorneys involved in management at both the Firm and practice group levels. Diverse attorneys serve in roles including Executive Committee Members and Practice Group Leaders.
