Opportunity & Progress Council – Foster Garvey’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative

Opportunity & Progress CouncilFoster Garvey believes it is our duty and moral imperative as legal professionals to take measurable action in support of our core values of inclusion, equality and respect for people of all backgrounds. The firm supports and invests in the work of the Opportunity & Progress Council (OPC) to break down institutional and cultural barriers to diversity, equity and inclusion.

The mission of the OPC is to champion opportunity, increase diversity and embrace inclusion to secure enduring progress towards a shared environment where everyone can do their best work together, both within our firm and in the communities we serve.

The OPC is focused on guiding Foster Garvey’s organizational culture to holistically value and advance individuals from historically underrepresented groups, including people of color, those with disabilities, women and the LGBTQ community, with an emphasis on promoting these individuals into leadership roles. By empowering and supporting a multitude of perspectives, the OPC enriches our communities and enhances our ability to best serve our clients.

The OPC furthers its mission through a number of strategic institutional initiatives, which include:

The OPC is co-chaired by attorneys Bryan Helfer and Paul Heer and is managed by Equity and Pro Bono Specialist Hannah Fine.
