“Diversity is really just a function of numbers…but inclusion really focuses on: Are those people being included and is everyone getting the same types of opportunities for success?“
Jason Hazlewood

Having grown up hearing about the exciting work in BigLaw, Jason Hazlewood always knew he wanted to be at a global firm working on impactful cases. What’s kept him at Reed Smith is the genuinely inclusive environment and a leadership team that is “willing to listen and really hear you.” Jason points to being recently named the Pittsburgh office managing partner as a clear example of Black lawyers having a “chance to succeed” and “move up the ranks” at Reed Smith.
