Since 2002, Plunkett Cooney's Diversity Committee has met monthly to address issues pertinent to the recruiting, hiring and retaining employees. Meetings follow a formal agenda and regular reports are issued to the firm’s management team and Board of Directors.
Audrey J. Forbush and Alannah M. Buford currently serve as co-chairs of the firm's Diversity Committee. Members of the committee focus on moving the firm further along the diversity continuum by achieving the overarching firm goals of reflecting the population of the communities in which we work and live and creating an environment of mutual respect and equal opportunity for all.
In 2018, Plunkett Cooney President in CEO Thomas P. Vincent took the important step of naming the first first Director of Diversity & Inclusion Laurel F. McGiffert. Ms. McGiffert has the distinction of being the firm's first female African American shareholder.
