Diversity & Inclusion Committee
Fellers Snider maintains an active Diversity & Inclusion Committee whose goal is to facilitate the implementation of proactive policies addressing the issues of recruiting, retaining, developing and promoting qualified attorneys and staff as well as increasing the diversity of the firm. In addition, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee monitors existing policies and practices to make certain they are consistent with, and actively promote, the diversity goals of the firm.
Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship
In 2012, Fellers Snider launched a scholarship program centered on diversity and inclusion in the field of law. The scholarship recognizes students who are academically successful, community oriented, with a passion around diversity and inclusion.
The scholarship is open to all first year and second year law school students at the three Oklahoma law schools (Oklahoma City University School of Law, University of Oklahoma College of Law, University of Tulsa College of Law). The application is provided to each of the law schools in December or January. The law schools distribute the scholarship application through their respective posting and announcement systems.
