Woods Rogers Diversity Statement

We know many things make each person unique and we strive to provide a welcoming and great environment for people to grow and excel in their roles at the firm. Woods Rogers is fortunate to have a diverse workforce in compliance with federal, state, and local laws. The law, however, does not define our efforts.

As a leading law firm in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Woods Rogers knows having a wide and diverse talent pool enables our firm to offer clients the best combination of legal talent and differing perspectives. Accepting both the value and challenge of attracting and retaining diverse employees, the firm consistently seeks ways to attract top talent to serve clients from our offices in Roanoke, Lynchburg, Charlottesville, and Richmond.

Our commitment to diversity is reflected in our Board of Directors, leadership positions, and throughout our administrative staff. We have lawyers who are sought as speakers and trainers on issues of Diversity and Implicit Bias and other topics that help companies build better workplaces. Two attorneys presented an Implicit Bias session at the Virginia Women’s Conference, which is sponsored by Virginia Senator Mark Warner.

Additionally, the Roanoke, Virginia Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference recognized two of our attorneys as “Drum Majors for Justice” and awarded another the Dr. Perneller Chubb-Wilson Justice Award. These awards are given annually in honor of the legacy and spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

To Woods Rogers, “diversity and inclusion” are more than simply words on paper. The firm recognizes a diverse and inclusive workplace creates an environment where everyone is working towards a common goal. The benefit is how everyone sees the path forward differently. This approach allows us to collaborate, build the best team to serve a client, and foster good employee relationships.
