“To me, diversity means having a wide variety of perspectives--in terms of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, but not only those--also in terms of life experiences,” Dina said. “Inclusion is seeing the value in these perspectives and actively putting them to use. It’s about having the willingness to listen to and learn from distinct points of view, which I believe is a more thoughtful, comprehensive, and better way to serve our clients.
In addition to her practice, Dina serves in a number of civic capacities which allow her to leverage her professional interests to assist the community. Dina has lead the firm in its efforts to create a more inclusive work environment for all. As Chair, Dina works with the firm’s Executive and Hiring Committees to attract and retain diverse attorneys at all levels. Under Dina’s leadership, Cullen and Dykman has launched and participated in fellowship programs aimed at promoting diversity and inclusion. Her efforts have helped the firm honor its commitment to help address systemic racism and lack of diversity in the legal sector.
Cullen and Dykman is a proud contributing sponsor of LIBN's 2021 Diversity in Business Awards.
