Our Commitment to Inclusion & Diversity

At ZSA, we are strongly committed to fostering a culture of diversity, inclusiveness and equal employment opportunities for all. We strive to reflect these values through our internal hiring practices and workplace policies, by providing a supportive work environment and corporate culture that welcomes and embraces individuals of all backgrounds, and in our recruitment efforts on behalf of our valued candidates and clients. It has never been more relevant than it is today to continue to push this agenda forward, and make diversity and inclusiveness a top priority for how we approach everything we do, as we believe that this enables us to deliver exceptional service. We aim to match our clients with diverse legal professionals who contribute to the diversification of ideas, and build a workforce of individuals who reflect the world around them. We are dedicated to continuing to educate ourselves about bias, racism, and discrimination in all forms, adopting inclusive recruitment strategies, and identifying new opportunities to attract and promote a diverse talent pool. We stand in solidarity with those facing racial and other forms of systemic discrimination. It is our goal to be representative of these communities and help individuals facing any form of discrimination to reach their full potential.
