Diversity

We represent diversity:

Diversity is a core value of Fields & Brown and is evident at all levels within the firm. Our diversity did not develop as a result of a formal plan, but instead from our commitment to finding top talent regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, citizenship, marital status, gender identity, sexual orientation, and genetic information, or any other status as defined and protected by applicable law. We believe that our diversity enhances our ability to bring a wide range of perspectives and life experiences to the work we do.

Leading the efforts:

Fields & Brown is a signatory firm to the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association’s (KCMBA) Diversity Commitment.  This initiative, to promote inclusiveness throughout the KCMBA, is the result of efforts made by law firm members, local corporations and regional law schools. Fields & Brown’s managing partner, Taylor Fields chaired the KCMBA’s Managing Partners Committee and assumed a leadership role in launching this effort.

Diversity in Action:

Fields & Brown annually recruits new talent at the Heartland Diversity Legal Job Fair, a part of the KCMBA’s Diversity Commitment.
