At DLA Piper, diversity and inclusion are a part of how we live our values. We are one of the world's largest law firms, with lawyers and staff in more than 30 countries throughout the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and our efforts to embrace, value and incorporate diversity are woven into our culture. Further, we know that our clients expect our people to represent the communities in which we work and value our ability to advise them on both local and global cultures and markets. We are on a journey and, like most law firms, we still have some distance to travel. But with strategic approaches within our geographic regions, we're making great progress.
