Schulte is seriously committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work; minimizing our impact on the environment; cultivating a diverse, talented workforce; and providing our lawyers with the resources they need to build rewarding careers here.
In the days following 9/11, Schulte’s Charitable Contributions Committee established the SRZ Disaster Relief Fund. Since then, the firm has given generously to victims of disasters around the world, including those affected by the earthquake in Haiti, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and Hurricane Katrina in the United States. We also regularly participate in charitable events such as donation-based dress-down days and holiday gift collection for underprivileged children.
Efficiency is very important to us — both in how we work and how we use our resources. In recent years, we have focused on improving and streamlining our internal processes in order to lessen the firm’s impact on the environment.
Our efforts have worked: Since thoroughly reviewing and modifying firm practices and policies, we have seen a significant decrease in paper use, an increase in staff reliance on alternative transportation, and a substantial reduction in our offices’ energy use. As part of our ongoing commitment to green initiatives, we continue to look for new ways to lower our carbon footprint.
Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee is committed to expanding our efforts to foster an inclusive work environment and attract, retain, and develop top talent. Learn more.
