Diversity Newsletter: Commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we would like to share this month’s Affinity newsletter, “Commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day.” This issue was written by Member Simone Yoder, whose maternal grandparents were Holocaust survivors. As Simone says, “We must pass along the history of the Holocaust to future generations so that history does not repeat itself and so we can keep the promise of #NeverForget.”

MBLB strives to be a diverse law firm. Our goal is to create and maintain an environment that welcomes and fosters mutual respect for different perspectives, backgrounds and life experiences regardless of gender, race, creed, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability. We are committed to ensuring that professional growth and advancement are based on capability and performance and recognize that a diverse workforce enriches our experiences and lends to our success. We value and support all who positively contribute to our practice and our community.

MBLB’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee members include members Alan Brackett and Mike Parks along with associate JoAnn John.

Among the initiatives the DE&I Committee has launched is the Affinity newsletter, which allows diverse voices and points of view to be shared, both within our firm and externally. The newsletter is intended to educate, particularly on historical diversity issues and their impact on or by the law. While these articles provide valuable perspective, they are not intended to espouse a position by the firm.

Let’s start a conversation!
