Del Pizzo Featured in Commerce MagazineFebruary 15, 2022 |
Nancy Del Pizzo was featured in the February issue of Commerce Magazine in the article, “Embracing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is a Competitive Advantage.”
The magazine asked New Jersey’s leading organizations and companies to discuss their outreach and how it allows them to deliver value to their workforces and clients.
Del Pizzo stated, “Rivkin Radler’s Development, Diversity and Inclusion (DDI) initiative is intended to strengthen the firm and in doing so, meet the needs, requests and goals of our clients, foster a culture of inclusion to attract and maintain strong talent and grow the business. We work to increase diversity through recruiting efforts, promoting the development and advancement of attorneys via our mentoring and leadership program, and by supporting an inclusive environment through trainings, committee discussions and events. A key part of our efforts to build a robust roster of diverse talent at all levels is reaching out to affinity groups and offering internships and making lateral hires. Specifically, open attorney positions are shared with regional affinity groups and the firm attorneys who hold leadership positions in these organizations. The firm also hosts summer interns from local affinity groups and through diversity fellowships. Our mentoring program is intended to develop a talented and diverse group of associates for leadership roles, including potential elevation to partner as warranted. Our DDI committee regularly meets to discuss initiatives and programs. Key to its effectiveness is that its members include equity partners, a member of the firm’s executive committee, associates and senior human resources and marketing professionals.”
