"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi
Recent current events have highlighted the ongoing racial injustices in our society that must end. These events have been weighing heavily on our hearts and minds, and we have been reflecting on what we can do within our firm and within our community to work towards meaningful and lasting change.
At Parmenter, our purpose is to strive to raise the bar by challenging ourselves to find ways to improve client service, our legal products, our work environment, our community, and our team. To live up to this purpose, we must evolve and embrace change as an opportunity to do better. We recognize our firm, like our profession, has room to improve and grow. With that in mind, we created a firm Unity Committee which will meet regularly to seek the ways in which we can improve our internal culture and determine how we can best support our community in fighting racial injustice. We look forward to the continued conversation and action that this committee will bring.
We believe our differences are our strengths. We are committed to moving forward in the spirit of progress, hope, love, and unity. Collectively, and in time, we will be part of the change.
