Vorys announced today that the firm has signed the Greater Houston Partnership’s “One Houston Together” Racial Equity Principles pledge.
“We’re proud to sign on to the pledge and support the Houston business community in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Houston Office Managing Partner Steve Browning. “At Vorys, we are already aligned with the principles set forth in this pledge and we believe that through our mutual commitment we will better serve the communities in which we live and work.”
The principles are a framework to communicate the Houston business community’s pledge to reforming systems of bias, strengthening underserved communities, advocating inclusion, and removing barriers to achievement. The principles articulate how businesses can commit to advancing racial equity within their organizations and throughout the Houston community.
Vorys is one of 129 members (and counting) of the Houston business community who have committed to addressing obstacles to racial equity that impede the fair and open treatment of members of the Houston community.
