DRI is the largest international membership organization of attorneys defending the interests of business and individuals in civil litigation.
Diversity is a core value at DRI. Indeed, diversity, which includes sexual orientation, is fundamental to the success of the organization, and we seek out and embrace the innumerable benefits and contributions that the perspectives, backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences a diverse membership provides.
Inclusiveness is the chief means to increase the diversity of DRI’s membership and leadership positions. DRI’s members and potential leaders are often also members and leaders of other defense organizations. Accordingly, DRI encourages all national, state, and local defense organizations to promote diversity and inclusion in their membership and leadership.
DRI is committed to the policy of equal opportunity regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, national origin and disability in all of its programs and activities, as well as maintaining an environment in our programs and activities which is free from all forms of harassment or discrimination of any kind. Pursuant to this policy, if any person who attends our programs or activities experiences unlawful discrimination or harassment, this should be reported to the Executive Director so that appropriate action may be taken.
