Connecting with our communities is an important aspect of our firm culture. Vinson & Elkins lawyers and business professionals across the globe volunteer at charitable organizations and contribute their time, finances, and personal efforts to make a positive impact on those in need.
With purposeful involvement from the top levels across our firm, Vinson & Elkins’ diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts are focused on meaningful solutions that allow us to attract and retain top quality talent.
Pro bono initiatives provide an opportunity to connect with the human side of the practice of law and to give back to our communities. At Vinson & Elkins, our lawyers are guided by the principle that pro bono clients — like all of our clients — should be fully and effectively represented.
We understand Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) has no finish line. Our impact in our communities and the world is connected to our ability to deliver on ESG solutions for our clients and ourselves, and we look forward to continuing the work.
Vinson & Elkins’ Women’s Initiative empowers our women lawyers to build path-breaking legal careers. Our inclusion structure includes purposeful involvement from the top level. Having male and female partners actively involved in conversations around the success of women at our firm is a critical part of the solution to advancing and retaining women.
As a firm, Vinson & Elkins stands in support of our Black attorneys and business professionals, and our communities that have been, and continue to be, deeply impacted by racial injustice and police brutality. We are steadfast in our conviction that there is no room in our organization or society for racism, discrimination, or injustice toward Black people or other people of color.
