Pledge to Diversity
The Colorado Pledge to Racial and Ethnic Diversity was originally signed by a group of leading Colorado law firms in April 1993 and has been updated and reconfirmed on several occasions since. Its purpose is to set forth clear, realistic, and attainable goals for the enhancement of diversity in Colorado law firms. Leading firms agreed to join together in this undertakings because it was apparent that, despite individual efforts and good intentions, law firms had been unsuccessful in achieving the level of diversity that they wanted and should attain. As a result of signing the Colorado Pledge to Diversity, more than 20 of the most prominent firms in Colorado have agreed to recruit and hire people of more diverse backgrounds to fill their ranks.
