On Wednesday, October 14, Orrick will host our seventh annual “Dive/In”—a worldwide celebration of the different backgrounds and cultures that constitute our global community. As part of this celebration, we are hosting diversity and inclusion events for clients and friends of the firm in five cities across the United States and in our Geneva office—each focused on a different view on diversity (Please note that our Portland office event at Bridge Meadows will take place Monday, October 12):
