PK Law: A Culture of Diversity and Inclusion
With leadership from the Firm’s Managing Director, Business Managers, Chief Business Development Officer, and Director of Human Resources, PK Law embraces a culture of diversity and inclusion among all levels of attorneys and staff. The Firm recognizes that a diverse and inclusive environment not only makes the Firm a better place to work, but better able to serve the needs of diverse clients.
What Makes PK Law Unique?
- The Firm is recognized for having one of the highest percentages of female partners in a law firm in the state. As of January 2018, forty two percent of the Firm’s Members are women and forty eight percent of the Firm’s Members identify themselves as women, a person of color or disabled.
- PK Law has been recognized repeatedly as a Baltimore Sun Best Places to Work and a BBJ Best Places to Work Finalist. These accolades are due in large part to the culture of the firm, which places a high value on respect for and inclusion of those with varying origins and beliefs.
- The firm is recognized in the community for being LGBT friendly. The Firm was one of the first in the state to develop an LGBT practice. The practice continues today serving, supporting and welcoming the LGBT community and other minority groups.
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
- This past year, PK Law joined the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and three other large area law firms to support and help fund the Diversity and Inclusion Scholars Initiative. “We are incredibly grateful to these firms for their leadership in addressing this challenge,” said Dean Donald B. Tobin. “Our profession has talked about the importance of increasing diversity for years. This new collaboration is a significant step toward achieving that goal here in Maryland. I hope every law firm in the state will join us.”
- PK Law is the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law’s Black Law Students Association (BLSA) recipient of the 2018 Firm Diversity Award. The Firm Diversity Award is presented to an organization in the greater Baltimore area that promotes the recruitment and retention of minority attorneys.
- PK Law supports both the University of Baltimore and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law’s Black Student Association (BLSA) events with sponsorships and event attendance.
