ZARWIN BAUM'S DIVERSITY MISSION STATEMENT
Zarwin Baum's commitment to diversity is reflected both internally and externally. Internally, it is important for our "community" to mirror the global communities in which our employees and clients live and work. To that end, we strive to create an environment where people of different backgrounds and cultures can work free of discrimination and prejudice – a well-balanced workforce consisting of employees of both genders and varying ages, races, ethnicity, religions, sexual orientation and physical abilities. Externally, the firm's clients directly benefit from our diverse workforce. We provide excellent services to our clients because we have created a fair and stable environment in which our employees can thrive and succeed.
Zarwin Baum sponsors events that promote diversity in hiring, create networking opportunities and support community involvement. Individually, our attorneys participate in professional, civic, charitable and community activities outside the firm. We support pro bono activities, and many of our attorneys serve as board and committee members for leading community organizations across the state, including Philabundance, Golden Slipper Club and Charities, Penn Asian Senior Services (PASSi), Ronald McDonald House, and Philadelphia's African and Carribean Immigrant Affairs Commission.
Zarwin Baum's Diversity Committee, led by shareholders Darwin R. Beauvais and Jill Fisher, is dedicated to continuing to develop and implement programs, both internally and for the community, which foster the inclusion of individuals with diverse characteristics. Our challenge is to use our diversity in ways that bring fresh and richer perspectives to our jobs and to our business.
