DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Teague Campbell strives to create an inclusive and diverse environment within the firm and in the community. 

Along with the firm’s Management Committees, our Diversity 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.

OUR INITIATIVES

  • 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 and Inclusion Committee promotes open and transparent dialogue amongst firm members and these discussions are an important part of that culture.

  • Recruitment Efforts

    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 & 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.

  • Scholarship

    Teague Campbell has created a Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship for one outstanding diverse student who meets eligibility requirements. Details about the scholarship can be found here, including deadlines and the application process.

  • Black History Month Book Drive

    In celebration of Black History Month, Teague Campbell hosted a book drive to promote literacy within the minority populations of Wake County. The goal is to disseminate books featuring black and/or minority characters in the hopes that intentional exposure will spark an increased interest in reading.

  • Firm Book Club

    Attorneys and staff at Teague Campbell meet once every quarter to deepen their knowledge and discuss and explore issues related to diversity, inclusion, equity and justice through books selected by the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
