Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

BrownWinick recognizes that differences in age, gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, culture, education, socioeconomic status, mental or physical ability, marital and parental status, thinking style, and background bring richness to our work environment and are integral to the success of our colleagues, business partners, and clients. We strive to create and maintain a working culture where diversity and inclusivity, access, and equity are embraced. Through such efforts as recruitment, development, education, and retention, the Firm endeavors to cultivate an atmosphere where all will feel engaged and welcomed to participate in open discussions, which will in turn make the Firm and our community, as a whole, stronger and more dynamic.
