Diversity, equity and inclusion are core values at Foster Garvey that are integrated into the firm’s culture and the way we do business. Through these core values we enhance our ability to provide clients with innovative, creative and collaborative advocacy, as well as creating a vibrant Foster Garvey team.

We are committed to recruiting and mentoring diverse professionals, maintaining an inclusive environment in which our talented workforce may thrive, and increasing diversity representation in all aspects of our firm, including firm leadership.

Guiding Foster Garvey’s actions in these important areas is the Opportunity & Progress Council (OPC), which establishes and executes the firm’s strategic initiatives aimed at breaking down institutional and cultural barriers to diversity, equity and inclusion, and creating a shared environment where everyone can do their best work together.

Our Commitment
Foster Garvey’s goal is a workplace reflective of the communities we serve. We firmly believe that commitment to the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion involves more than statistics. The firm’s commitment is exemplified by our ongoing efforts to continually improve diversity, equity and inclusion in every aspect of our workplace.

Our diverse professionals are active in firm leadership, holding positions as Practice Group Leaders, managing directors of our offices, chairs of committees and members of the firm’s Executive Committee and Practice Management Committee.

Hiring & Training
Foster Garvey has a strong record of recruiting diverse talent from across the United States. We participate in minority job fairs and diversity receptions at law schools including Seattle University and the University of Washington, as well as at local law firms.

We provide training annually to all of our professionals to promote an inclusive workplace. We have worked with several inclusion and diversity experts who have helped us appreciate the opportunities that an inclusive firm brings and how it helps us better serve our clients.
