“Our firm is stronger, smarter, and can deliver creative and unique solutions to our clients when our team is diverse,” Erin said in an interview. “We’re able to respond quickly to our clients with innovative solutions all the time when we have more diverse people servicing them.”

One of Littler’s leading diversity initiatives, the Career Advocacy Program, helps diverse, high-achieving associates achieve and thrive in partnership. As of 2021, more than half of the firm’s attorneys were women, which Littler supports through its Women’s Leadership Initiative, a mentorship program, and other efforts. In 2020, the firm also launched “Breaking Through: Littler’s D&I Comp Initiative,” which aims to double the number of attorneys of color, women, and LGBTQ+ shareholders in the top quartile of the firm’s compensation system within five years.

In 2021, Littler was named an LCLD Top Performer in for the eighth consecutive year.
