Our Diversity Mission
To foster an inclusive workplace culture that values different perspectives, creates engagement, promotes creativity, and fuels innovative thinking.
A vital source of strength
Carmody believes that employing people of diverse, eclectic backgrounds and perspectives maximizes our potential for success, and creates a vibrant, creative and productive workplace. We are committed to attracting and retaining outstanding, well-rounded lawyers by nurturing an atmosphere where attorneys from all backgrounds can flourish based on their talent, knowledge, passion and dedication.
Part of our very fabric
Because diversity is integral to who we are, it is a key component of our strategic plan. The firm’s diversity efforts are led by our managing partner and practice group leaders, and are supported by our human resources professional staff.
Diversity in action
We believe actions speak louder than mission statements. At Carmody, diversity is more than staffing quotas. It is part of our everyday life.
2017 Diversity Scholar Program
Joint 1L Summer Associate Experience
Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey LLP and Eversource Energy Legal Department will provide a law student of a diverse background a unique opportunity to participate in their summer associate programs. The selected student will spend half of the summer at Eversource Energy Legal Department where he/she will have an opportunity to participate in the day-to-day work experiences of in-house attorneys at a major Connecticut utility. The other half of the program will be spent at Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey, the largest law firm in Western Connecticut, participating in its regular Summer Associate program with exposure to its training programs and work assignments as well as getting a feel for what a career at a firm is like. A mentor from each organization will provide professional and personal development assistance.
Both Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey and Eversource Energy are committed to the recruitment and retention of attorneys from diverse backgrounds. Both organizations are active in the Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity (formerly the Connecticut Lawyers Group) and were founding members of this group. As part of our ongoing efforts to promote diversity in the Connecticut legal community, we are pleased to offer this opportunity to first year law students.
All 1L students of diverse backgrounds at ABA accredited law schools are encouraged to apply. The candidate will be selected based on academic, personal and professional achievement.
