Inspiring Inclusion at TDS


published 03/08/2024

International Women's Day

At Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS), we proudly stand with women everywhere as we commemorate International Women's Day on March 8 - a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

This year the theme of International Women's Day is "Inspire Inclusion." The theme resonates deeply with TDS's commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion within our firm, in the legal community and everywhere we live. We continue to promote gender equality at work and where we live through a number of initiatives that include The TDS Equity and Accountability Council, mentorship and training opportunities, and the support of local women's organizations.

TDS has over 192 women lawyers, paralegals, legal assistants, students and staff, and their dedication, mentorship and leadership are instrumental in helping TDS meet the diverse needs of our clients.

"Our firm is growing, in part, due to our commitment to diversity and inclusion and the support we give to women entering the legal profession and transitioning throughout the different stages of their career. We are a firm of different perspectives and experiences, but a shared commitment to dismantle the biases that prevent opportunity and growth for our colleagues and our community."
 - Bailey Harris, TDS Partner and Equity and Accountability Council Chair


As we recognize the remarkable achievements of women around the world, we also acknowledge the importance of creating opportunities for women everywhere. Together, we can strive to break down barriers and inspire inclusion.
