White & Case’s global footprint and rich cultural landscape is one of our greatest strengths. People are core to our mission – from legal services, to business services, and our network of clients, we are committed to embedding and extending equity and inclusion across every aspect of our business strategy and the broader communities in which we live and work.

We are made of outstanding women, who not only come from a range of racial and ethnic backgrounds but also women with different care-giving responsibilities, with disabilities, LGBTQ+ women, and more. We want to support all women, and give them ample opportunities to achieve their professional goals. Our Firm will be richer for it, and our clients will benefit from the diverse perspectives and experiences they will each bring to the table.
