Studies all show that the greater the diversity of your work force, the more likely you are to come up with creative and unique solutions to the problems you are trying to address. At Greenberg Traurig, we have always been committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. It is in our DNA and has been one of the core values on which we were founded nearly 50 years ago. Throughout our history and as we have grown, we have always strived to create an environment where differences are embraced and utilized creatively."
