Bryan Cave

Diversity Committee

Lisa Demet Martin, Chief Diversity Officer “Becoming an increasingly diverse and inclusive firm is one of Bryan Cave’s key strategic imperatives.  The firm’s Diversity Committee leads us in these efforts.  The Diversity Committee is dedicated to making the firm an attractive, inclusive and respectful environment for lawyers who are women, of color, or openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.  The Diversity Committee provides advice and direction in designing and implementing policies, practices and programs that promote the recruitment, retention and advancement of diverse lawyers at the firm.”
   - , Chief Diversity Officer 

Bryan Cave’s Diversity Committee consists of 15 diverse partners from nearly all of our domestic offices and a variety of practice areas.  The Committee includes several members of the firm’s Executive and Management Committees as well as the firm’s chief officers of human resources, recruiting and professional development, and marketing.  Chaired by the Chief Diversity Officer, the Diversity Committee develops policies and programs that support the development and success of our women lawyers, lawyers of color and LGBT lawyers.  The breadth of the Committee facilitates communication of our diversity efforts throughout the firm, and ensures that our initiatives are fully supported and integrated.
