February is Black History Month. To commemorate, Pond Lehocky will use its website and social media accounts to spotlight staff members’ thoughts on the importance of black representation in the workplace and challenges faced by black employees.
Pond Lehocky will also use a weekly staff email to highlight African American pioneers who helped change the culture with important contributions to society.
The firm will also host a special dress-down day, encouraging staff to wear red, black and green to celebrate African American heritage. Staff members will be asked to donate $1 or a canned food item to participate. The food collected will be donated to Broad Street Ministry, which provides meals and shelter to Philadelphia’s homeless. The money donated will be to a worthy cause to be determined.
Pond Lehocky has made it a priority to build a culture of collaboration, diversity and inclusion. The firm strives to work together as a team, valuing each team member’s input and fresh perspectives to deliver passionate and innovative service.
The firm has made it a mission to diversify the legal industry, not only to meet a moral obligation, but because it understands that inclusion is good for business. Getting diverse input and insights allows Pond Lehocky to better connect with its clients, who come from all walks of life, and helps the firm deliver innovative legal solutions to clients’ most pressing problems.
