Teague Campbell strives to create an equitable, inclusive and diverse environment within the firm and in the community.
Along with the firm’s Management Committees, our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee is dedicated to seeking and retaining the best legal talent available who share in our commitment to diversity by fostering awareness, understanding and appreciation of people from all backgrounds. Our commitment to promoting an enriching and supportive environment allows Teague Campbell and its clients to thrive and succeed.
The committee defines diversity as a broad spectrum of characteristics including but not limited to race, color, ethnicity, national origin, gender, age, religion, culture, language, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, socioeconomic status, family structures, geographic differences, diversity of thought, talent, perspectives, and experience.
Firmwide Diversity Discussions
We are proud that 100% of our firm members have participated in a series of virtual discussions and activities to facilitate conversation and further our diversity and inclusion goals. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee promotes open and transparent dialogue amongst firm members and these discussions are an important part of that culture.
The firm has concentrated its recruitment efforts through on-campus interviews at North Carolina Central University School of Law, Wake Forest University School of Law, Campbell Law School, Duke Law School and UNC School of Law. The firm’s Hiring Committee and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee also attended the Southeastern Minority Job Fair in Atlanta in order to increase diverse candidate pool which put Teague Campbell in a competitive position to attract and retain diverse talent.
Teague Campbell has created a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Scholarship for outstanding diverse students who meet eligibility requirements. Nominations for the 2022 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship are now open through November 11, 2022. Details about the scholarship can be found here, including deadlines and the application process.
