AUGUST 7, 2023 – Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is one of just seven law firms nationwide to receive a top score on the 2023 Disability Equality Index, earning the firm recognition as a "Best Place To Work for Disability Inclusion."
The Disability Equality Index is a comprehensive benchmarking tool and a joint initiative of Disability:IN and the American Association of People With Disabilities. Companies receive a score of up to 100, with those scoring above 80 recognized as a "Best Place To Work for Disability Inclusion." This is Davis Wright's second year receiving the honor.
"Our commitment to DEI includes our commitment to disability inclusion," said Yusuf Zakir, chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer at Davis Wright, "and we want to continue to be a 'best place to work' in this regard."
Davis Wright's many inclusion initiatives include our Abilities & Allies employee resource group, utilizing Mansfield for recruiting individuals with disabilities, and our education series around National Disability Employment Awareness month.
Davis Wright has cemented its commitment to DEI within the new firmwide strategic plan. The firm's four-pillar DEI framework—Community, Growth, Education, and Engagement—seeks to embed DEI across the organization in a sustainable and meaningful way.
