Jill Long authored an article in Oregon Business magazine’s October 2016 issue titled “How Saying Yes Helped Create a New Era for Diversity and Inclusion at Lane Powell.” The article discusses Lane Powell’s commitment to diversity and inclusion — a commitment that extends to the community in which Lane Powell’s attorneys and staff live and work. Lane Powell has exciting new initiatives around mentoring, hiring and education, including a summer law student diversity scholarship, membership in a leading national organization — Leadership Council on Legal Diversity — the development of Lane Powell’s first Director of Professional Development and Diversity, and much more.

Like Portland is a small “big-city,” Lane Powell is a small “big-firm,” where everyone has the opportunity to know each other. The next decade of diversity and inclusion at Lane Powell will take advantage of that fact. Every initiative we create will be an opportunity for connection with our clients and our community. We strive to take the same care with each other that we take with our client’s work. This philosophy will help us build an ever strong inclusive workplace and we know the future is very bright for diversity and inclusion at Lane Powell.
