Dority & Manning's RISE program is a multi-faceted program aimed at bolstering diversity, equity, and inclusion inside and outside of our Firm. The RISE acronym refers to the pillars of our programs, Recruiting, Retention, Internal Education, Sustainability & Accountability, and External Engagement.
One of the ways we aim to increase diversity is through our education initiatives. While summer programs for law students and lateral training initiatives help support individuals already in the
field (or well on their way), educational initiatives at the undergraduate or high-school level reach students who may not have a clear path into IP and allow us to educate students on the possibilities within STEAM fields.
