Best Lawyers recently commended Foster Garvey’s efforts toward a more inclusive work environment with an article about the firm’s new Declared Names and Declared Pronouns Policy. Law firm and business leaders alike are welcome to download a template of the policy as part of their own support for diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
Best Lawyers reports, “Reaffirming the correct use of pronouns and their importance to members of the LGBTQ+ community is paramount to establishing change.
