Toronto, Canada, November 02, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- A Call to Action Canada (ACTAC) is pleased to announce that DTI | Epiq has become the newest signatory to the ACTAC mission statement, committing to promote diversity in the legal profession. This is intended to be a call to action for the profession, and in particular for corporate law departments, to make decisions regarding which law firms represent their companies based in significant part on the diversity performance of the firms. By committing to the principles of the mission statement, corporate legal officers pledge to: enhance opportunities for firms that positively distinguish themselves in this area; look for opportunities to direct work to firms which are controlled by women or minorities; and end or limit relationships with firms that demonstrate a lack of interest in being diverse.
"We are very happy to have DTI | Epiq as a signatory along with our other corporate members who recognize the importance of inclusion of women and minorities," says Joy Casey and Yolanda Coly, ACTAC co-chairs. "We encourage others to come on board to further the mission of inclusion in the Canadian legal profession."
"Diversity and inclusion are of the utmost important to DTI | Epiq and are initiatives that we focus on in our outward relationships as well as our internal culture. We are proud to stand with A Call to Action Canada to further these goals,” says James Clark, Director of Legal Solutions at DTI | Epiq.
