Diversity, equity and inclusion are among the fundamental values of Rawle & Henderson. Our firm began in Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection, with an enduring tradition of treating all people with dignity and respect. It is especially important to be reminded that the diversity of our communities is one of our greatest strengths.
The month of June provides us with an opportunity to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.
Now and throughout the year, we reflect on the positive influences of all people. The richness of those who shape and embrace us as lawyers, professionals, mothers, fathers, aunts and uncles, human beings and as members of the community. The people around us – regardless of our or their identity or sexual orientation – are to be valued. We all have challenges in life but none of us should face greater challenges because of who we love or the difference in our identities.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
