John S. Mitchell, Jr. - LGBTQ Initiative Chair

Our firm’s LGBTQ+ Initiative supports an environment that allows our LGBTQ+ employees to contribute meaningfully and succeed professionally. This group provides a lively forum for exchanging ideas and common experiences while helping to promote networking within and outside the firm, professional and business development and community outreach. We are proud to have received a perfect 100 on the 2022 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.
