First Houston Law Firm to Join the ADL’s Diversity Program

HOUSTON - Thompson & Knight is the first Houston law firm to join the “Community of Respect” program of the Anti-Defamation League. The program provides tools and resources to help Houston-area organizations fight prejudice, bigotry and discrimination, and engender respect and appreciation for diversity.

By formally committing to the program, Thompson & Knight has agreed to demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusiveness through at least three specific activities this year. The local initiative is actively recruiting businesses, churches and other organizations, and Houston Mayor Bill White and Sugar Land Mayor David Wallace are serving as honorary co-chairmen for the effort.

“This is truly a dynamic, city-wide program and Thompson & Knight can be especially proud of being the first law firm to participate in this effort,” says Alfred M. Meyerson, a partner in the firm and board member of the Anti-Defamation League’s Southwest region. “We believe it is important to demonstrate to our employees and our clients around the world the actions we are taking to promote and respect diversity within the firm and in our community.”

The Community of Respect program is organized by the Anti-Defamation League with the generous support of the Bridgeway Charitable Foundation and other contributors.
