Diversity

At McAfee & Taft, we are committed to serving our clients by pursuing creative legal solutions to their many and varied needs. We understand that it is essential to approach legal challenges from uncommon perspectives, and to rely on the diverse interests, talents, backgrounds and life experiences of our lawyers and staff to provide the very best in legal services.

For these reasons, McAfee & Taft is strongly committed to providing opportunities and fostering a diverse workplace where creativity and excellence are not only pursued, but achieved, and where all attorneys and staff are encouraged and assisted in reaching their fullest potential.

While McAfee & Taft has always recruited, retained and promoted lawyers and staff without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin or ancestry, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected status, we recognize the importance of strengthening and enhancing our diversity in order to better serve our clients and community.

Our commitment is expressed in a range of initiatives, including:

  • Involving attorneys from diverse backgrounds in decision-making responsibilities and leadership positions.
  • Focusing on the recruitment, retention, promotion and professional development of female attorneys through the dedicated efforts of a Women’s Initiative Committee.
  • Working to expand the pipeline of diverse law school applicants and attendees, and ultimately increasing the diversity of the legal community at-large, by offering LSAT prep assistance and mentoring and networking opportunities to undergraduate students from underrepresented populations through the McAfee & Taft LSAT Prep Scholarship Program.
  • Recruiting for a diverse workplace, primarily at the three Oklahoma-based law schools.
  • Actively participating in and sponsoring law school and local affinity group organizations, programs and special events.
  • Sponsoring diverse associate attorneys to participate in conferences hosted by nationally recognized diverse legal organizations.
  • Providing diversity, equity and inclusion training and other educational opportunities to our attorneys and staff.
  • Donating our time and resources to a broad range of community outreach organizations that serve the public interest.
  • Providing pro bono legal services to organizations and community causes which serve diverse segments of our community’s population.
