March 20, 2012 by Mark
Internationally renowned law firm, Greenberg Traurig, P.A., in Florida‘s West Palm Beach , was selected to receive the first “Judge Edward Rodgers Diversity Award” by the Committee for Diversity and Inclusion of the Palm Beach County Bar Association. This award will become an annual event. The law firm is no doubt using printing services for flyer printing and poster printing to make the general public aware of their receipt of this award advertising their standing in the community and to, potentially, attract new clients.
The award was accepted by two shareholders of the firm, Tracy L. Gerber and Bridget A. Berry, at the 2012 Bench Bar Conference. Over 1,000 lawyers attended the conference, as did judges from the 15th Judicial Circuit, the Court of Appeal of the 4th District, the County Court of Palm Beach, and Florida Supreme Court Justice, Barbara Pariente.
Greenberg Traurig has demonstrated a commitment to recruitment, diversuty, promotion and retention of individuals of diverse backgrounds and to the diversity programs of the local bar association. The firm has also endeavored to create an equitable and inclusive environment to work in and has participated in outreach programs for the community designed to encourage those with diverse backgrounds to enter and be successful in the field of law.
According to Mark F. Bideau, a Palm Beach Co-Managing Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig has always had diversity as one of its priorities, as evident in its practices of hiring, the charities to which it makes donations and the initiatives it supports that encourage those in minorities to consider entering the legal profession. One third of the attorneys based in the local office are minorities or women and are prominent figures in the Florida legal community.
