Sheridan Ross is committed to fostering an environment that embraces and promotes equality and inclusiveness where everyone has the opportunity to excel. We encourage our professionals to be themselves and share their perspectives, experiences, and insights. Our goal is to foster an environment that reflects our client base and the diversity of our clients’ communities because we believe that diversity and inclusiveness benefit the firm, our clients, and the communities in which we practice.
We value employing skilled professionals regardless of age, race, gender, political or religious views, veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, gender expression, or other personal attributes, and we are dedicated to recruiting, retaining, and promoting such professionals. Above all, we appreciate the character and unique backgrounds of each employee and the wisdom they bring to the firm and those we serve.
At Sheridan Ross, we revere our differences and work towards cultivating a workplace where all employees feel welcome and comfortable being themselves. To that end, we created an Inclusiveness, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) committee that is tasked with implementing and upholding the firm’s diversity mission and ensuring a culture of respect, inclusion, and compassion. The IDEA committee includes employees from every tier within the firm including our Executive Committee. It supports and encourages employee involvement in organizations and activities that promote diversity and acceptance, including mentoring with both those in and outside of the firm, participating in programs for recruitment, career development and advancement, and involvement with groups that foster the importance and benefits of securing fair treatment for all.
In addition to our internal focus on diversity and inclusion, our employees are active within their communities, and the firm in various ways supports the following organizations:
- The Pledge to Diversity
- The Anti-Defamation League
- The Asian Pacific American Bar Association
- Bayaud Enterprises
- The Colorado Women’s Bar Association
- Disability Law Colorado
- The South Asian Bar Association
