On September 1, 2017, Lavery officially became a partner of the Pride at Work initiative.
Lavery has committed to provide a work environment favourable to diversity in which each member of the firm can realize his or her full potential. Inclusion and tolerance are core values to Lavery which apply to all decisions regarding employment, including recruitment and selection, training and development, performance evaluations, compensation and promotions, but also to all aspects of the client relationship.
Through dialogue, education and thought leadership, Pride at Work empowers employers to foster workplace cultures that recognize LGBTQ+ employees as an important part of a diverse and effective workforce. Since 2008, the organization’s benchmarking, training, and consulting services help Canadian employers to create safer, more inclusive work spaces, realize the full potential of their staff teams and bring down barriers to employment for Canada’s LGBTQ+ community.
