Building Diversity at the Firm
Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner values diversity in our inclusive office environment. Schwegman has established a Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group to help continue to actively foster a culture embracing diversity. We believe that diversity can help contribute to collaborative efforts and to building a positive and supportive workplace and community.
