Stein Sperling attorneys recently completed the Directed Dialogues Series Diversity Equity and Inclusion Certification Program hosted by the Bar Association and Bar Foundation of Montgomery County.

Held in conjunction with DEI consulting firm Equity Through Action, the six-month program explored topics such as workplace power dynamics, building and leveraging emotional intelligence to achieve race equity and best practices for organizational change.

Participating firms, including Stein Sperling, were recognized for their successful completion of the series and for their leadership role in support of DEI in the legal community during a reception held in May.

Stein Sperling is committed to recruiting, developing, retaining, and promoting talented lawyers and staff with diverse backgrounds and experiences. The firm prioritizes, values, and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion, and continually strives to cultivate an environment in which all individuals and groups feel welcomed, respected, and supported.

According to Stein Sperling, the goal is to foster and support a team of lawyers and staff who are diverse as individuals but unified by our collective enthusiasm for serving our clients through the practice of law in our communities.
