Diversity & Inclusion

Recognizing that excellence and diversity are inextricably intertwined, Skadden seeks to recruit, retain and promote a diverse group of attorneys and staff throughout the firm.

Diversity and inclusion are fundamental to our success as a global law firm, helping us provide excellent legal advice to our clients' most pressing issues across a wide spectrum of industries, geographies and cultures. We strive to develop an infrastructure at Skadden to specifically address diversity and inclusion goals — through recruiting, development and retention, affinity groups, women's and other initiatives — while also continually inculcating these principles into the fabric of the firm. This infrastructure includes our global and local Diversity Committees and women’s initiative; the unwavering, visible imprimatur of firm leadership; and mechanisms for input and feedback from our attorneys.
