(Pittsburgh, PA - 2017-06-27)

Saul Ewing LLP, a full service law firm with more than 270 lawyers in 11 East Coast offices including one in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is one of the founding law firms for Pittsburgh’s Legal Diversity and Inclusion Coalition.

The Coalition’s goal is to build a group of law firms, law departments and affiliated organizations that will work collaboratively to increase the diversity of the region’s legal community.

Carrie Tongarm, an associate who is resident in the firm's Pittsburgh office, is leading the firm’s involvement in the coalition. Joining her on behalf of firm leadership on June 5, 2017 for the organization’s launch of its Call to Action were Charles Kelly, the Pittsburgh’s Office Managing Partner, and Michelle N. Lipkowitz, a partner in the Baltimore office and the Firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Partner.

Members of the coalition commit to making change happen, individually and collectively. In addition to Saul Ewing, those organizations already committed to this important undertaking include PNC, FedEx Ground, PPG Industries, University of Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and eight other law firms with a presence in Pittsburgh.
