Traditionally, diversity referred to visible factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion and disability. Today, the concept has expanded to include characteristics such as cultural and socioeconomic background, sexual orientation and political beliefs.
At Furtado Law PC, we recognize the individual definitions of diversity, equity and inclusion and have established a shared, fundamental understanding of how these interact. We respect the diversity of all individuals and strive to create an environment that highlights and promotes the collective value of our differences. We value and welcome the differences that exist among our staff and among our clients. We respect that each client has a unique perspective built on personal experiences. Diversity and inclusion is an outcome of how we approach each case.
In addition to our commitment to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion within our firm, we also recognize that our firm is stronger, more effective and more capable of meeting the needs of our clients and business interests when we embrace and practice these ideals in every aspect of our business.
