March 24, 2022 – At the Los Angeles Business Journal's 2022 Diversity, Equity + Inclusion Awards yesterday, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP was recognized as "Company of the Year" in the mid-size category.
The award is the latest recognition for the firm's ongoing work to foster a culture where all talented individuals—including those from communities traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession—can have and can see a path to success. Organizations including Diversity Lab, Bloomberg Law, and Microsoft have all recently recognized the firm as a DEI leader.
"Diverse, equitable, and inclusive teams reflect the world we serve, create a more engaging firm environment, and equip us with the most cutting-edge solutions to our clients' most complex challenges," said Camilo Echavarria, Davis Wright Tremaine's Los Angeles partner-in-charge. "We look forward to redoubling our efforts in the months and years ahead."
"We embed DEI into every facet of Davis Wright Tremaine," said the firm's chief DEI officer, Yusuf Zakir, who is also based in Los Angeles. "Our DEI vision rests on four pillars: Community, Growth, Education, and Engagement. This approach intersects across practice group management, office management, professional development, human resources, recruiting, marketing, and more. The ultimate objective is to ensure that DEI is central to all decision-making and to the firm's existence and operation. Awards like this one help affirm that we are on the right track."
