Inaugural Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Week
Sherrard Roe Voigt & Harbison launched an annual event series focused on diversity, equity and inclusion within the firm and the community. Diversity Week was held June 14-18, 2021, in conjunction with Pride month and Juneteenth. The SRVH Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee brainstormed and created daily events during the firm’s lunch hour that included lunches from local, minority-owned businesses.
